Event description
Toi Tangata and Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki invite you attend the Paeroa Pātaka Oranga type 2 diabetes wānanga.

About this Event

Toi Tangata and Te Korowai Hauora O Hauraki would like to invite kaimahi & whanau to join us Monday October 14 at 9.30-3.00 pm in Paeroa.

This co-design process builds on mātauranga Māori concepts which encourages participants to work collaboratively to understand the lived experiences of whanau living with type 2 diabetes.

This wānanga is an opportunity for whanau and Health providers to understand barriers to wellness and identify challenges for our Paeroa whanau living with type 2 diabetes.

We will use pātaka as a metaphoric navigational tool to understand the global food chain’s effect on our environment, our social wellbeing, and the significant influence it has on our kai and health decision making.

Participants will leave this workshop better able to understand the complex landscape and:

  • Understand what lived barriers to wellness are for Paeroa whanau
  • Understand why whanau should attend regular diabetes annual reviews
  • Understand why whanau should prioritise 6 monthly medication reviews
  • Understand how and what it means to keep HbA1cs to 50-60mmol/mol
  • Understand what the importance of reducing those who are over 60mmol/mol means
  • How to prevent renal and vascular complications
  • How food sovereignty and security may contribute to dietary quality and decision making.
