This year’s we’re talking hauora Research Talks featured some of our finest researchers in Canterbury, discussing your health and the health of the community. Teamed up with Ōtautahi Learning Days this year, and their theme Kōtuituia – Weaving Curiosity ’23, we were able to provide the public with an outstanding night of engaging kōrero.
