Fulbright New Zealand invites you to a free public seminar by Marilyn Tseng, a 2014 Fulbright US Scholar currently based at AUT University in Auckland. A research professor in kinesiology at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Marilyn is researching the relationship between maternal acculturation, diet and weight gain in Pacific children born in New Zealand.
In this seminar, Marilyn will discuss the health implications of migration between countries with different risks of chronic conditions. She will focus in particular on the health trajectories of Pacific immigrants arriving in New Zealand from countries with higher obesity rates and poorer health overall than the general New Zealand population.
Places are limited so please RSVP to [email protected] or 472 2065 by Wednesday 26 March. Feel free to bring your own “brown bag” lunch.
