Health Research Evening.

The University of Auckland and University of Otago are proud to present Today’s Research: Tomorrow’s Health. Come and hear from some of our leading health researchers as they share their work and passion for improving women’s and children’s health in New Zealand and around the world.

Research has the power to challenge and change the world we live in, positively impacting our society, culture, economy and environment for a better, healthier future.

We’re investing in women’s and children’s health to help provide the best possible start to lifelong health and ensure our families, communities and country thrive, by finding the answers to questions like:

- Can we interrupt the obesity cycle from mother to baby during pregnancy?
- How do we overcome the major complications in pregnancy?
- Can vitamin D prevent respiratory infections in young children?
- Does early anaemia change heart growth for life?
- How should we care for newborn babies with low blood sugar levels?

Speakers:
International authority Distinguished Professor Jane Harding from The University of Auckland, will talk about her research to improve lifelong health for babies. Jane's ongoing research activities concern the role of nutrition and growth factors in the regulation of growth before and after birth, and the long-term consequences of treatments given around the time of birth.

Associate Professor Bev Lawton from the University of Otago, will talk about her work on healthy mothers, healthy babies, healthy futures.

Other university women’s and children’s health research specialists will be available to answer questions about their research, including Associate Professor Cameron Grant from The University of Auckland. Cameron's research investigates child health problems that are common and affect New Zealand children disproportionately. His focus is on infectious diseases in young children and the prevention of disease caused by infections by better immunisation delivery or improved nutrition.
