A number of health topics were covered in a seminar for members of Auckland’s Korean community run by Hyejung Kim, a member of the Health Quality & Safety Commission’s consumer network.

A group of Korean women stand together in a room, smiling at the camera.

Some of the participants at the health seminar for the Korean community.

Topics included:

  • eligibility for publicly funded health services and enrolling with a primary health organisation
  • advance care planning and Enduring Power of Attorney
  • dementia prevention and care.

Korean community and health specialists delivered expert information in Korean and a number of consumers shared their personal experiences of the topics.

It was a great example of the Commission’s consumer representatives being proactive about health improvement in their communities.
