Whakawhetū warmly invites you to attend a one-day Protecting Our Mokopuna seminar

The purpose of the seminar is to:
Increase the knowledge of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) across the health sector, agencies, community and whānau
Share ideas and strategies on how we can continue collectively to reduce the SUDI rates in Aotearoa
Network with others working to further reduce SUDI rates
Increase community awareness and engagement in SUDI prevention

The seminars will build on existing SUDI knowledge and expertise, and will provide a forum to share innovative ideas about supporting women to stop smoking in pregnancy, encourage breastfeeding and practice safe sleep.  This invitation is extended to whānau, community and the workforce who work in, have an interest in, and are passionate about child health and wellbeing as well as strengthening leadership in SUDI prevention.

Participants will hear from keynote speakers Dr David Tipene-Leach, Professor Ed Mitchell and Kerry Dougall (Kōkiri Marae) while workshop breakout streams offer a showcase of kaupapa that focus on Innovation, Social Determinants of Health and Communicating with Whānau.  The day will conclude with a question and answer session with panelists who are SUDI researchers, local community leaders and champions for health and achieving mokopuna ora.

The cost of the seminar is $25 for those who earn over $50k a year and will be free to whānau and community members.
Numbers are limited to 100 people – morning tea and lunch is provided.
