7th Activity and Nutrition Aotearoa Conference 2017

ANA’s 7th Activity and Nutrition Aotearoa Conference was held on 30-31 May 2017 at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

When we WORK TOGETHER we have the power to INSPIRE CHANGE; a change that can transform where we live, work, learn and grow into environments that support healthy eating and physical activity.

We believe health promoters, researchers, educators, health professionals, exercise and recreation practitioners, policy makers and the food industry all have the power to INSPIRE CHANGE.
