National Kaumātua Service Providers Conference

Nov 27, 2018

The 2018 National Kaumātua Service Providers Conference recently held in New Plymouth provided a great opportunity for our local Live Stronger for Longer Coordinator Hilary Blackstock to profile fun strength and balance exercises.  Hilary was ably supported by Sheldon Ngatai, who delivers a fabulous Zumba Gold class which links to the 9 strength and balance criteria for evidenced-based falls prevention .  The energiser exercises interspersed throughout the conference were throroughly enjoyed by attendees; who included Kaumātua and service providers from around the country.
