"This Workshop was of benefit to me also because we had the opportunity to learn about broader concepts within hauora tangata, specifically about how a message is conveyed can have an important impact on how a message is received. The participants of the workshop illustrated this nicely with their own contributions coming from a wide variety of ethnic, cultural and professional backgrounds", March 2021.
