J B Munro

See video below
Jeni Hawker
Jeni Hawker from Age Concern Hamilton spoke on “Determination, Friend and Foe”. Self determination could be seen as a “foe” when it prevents us from making life changing decisions as our mobility and situations change. Changes in location and health happen easier if we are determined to take a friendlier attitude towards the process of ageing.
Wayne Hewlett
Pain management, the lecture given by Wayne Hewlett from Queen Elizabeth Health, Rotorua, contained a wealth of information and theories which are relevant to people with polio.
