Cancelled: Rotorua 2020 International Symposium
October 23 - October 25
IT IS WITH MUCH REGRET THAT THE AHSNZ TEAM HAS MADE THE CALL TO CANCEL THIS YEAR’S SYMPOSIUM IN LIGHT OF THE CURRENT UNCERTAINTY AROUND THE GLOBAL COVID-19 PANDEMIC. IT WILL BE OUR HOPE TO OFFER THIS EVENT IN 2021. ANYONE WHO HAS ALREADY PURCHASED A TICKET HAS HAD THEIR PAYMENT REFUNDED IN FULL. PLEASE ALLOW 10-15 DAYS FOR THIS TO APPEAR IN YOUR ACCOUNT.
THE AHSNZ TEAM
There is much wisdom from our ancestral past, both distal (our hunter-gatherer ancestry), and proximal (our great-grandparents, grandparents, parents) that we should look to apply in the present, especially if we are to head off some of the issues humanity faces as we move forward in these uncertain times.
The core aim of The Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand | Te Kauwhata Tūhauora o Aotearoa is to promote research and disseminate knowledge relevant to the diverse health, environmental, and economic challenges facing modern human societies, using our shared evolutionary biology as a starting point from which to begin such inquiries.
We are proud to announce our third international symposium – #AHSNZ2020.
To be held where both culture and geology collide – Rotorua, New Zealand.
