Greymouth-based Community and Public Health Nutrition Health Promoter Jade Winter has just been selected to attend a prestigious Oceanic leadership development course in Queensland in July.
Ms Winter is one of only 30 selected to attend the seven day Oceanic Nutrition Leadership Platform.
The aim of the course is to develop, inspire and connect a new generation of innovative leaders with foresight and broad vision of the integrative role of nutrition.
Among her recent accomplishments, Ms Winter wrote the sought after ‘Nourishing Futures for Better Kai’ resource; presented at the Public Health Association Conference on the resource as well as doing radio interviews at the time; and was a guest speaker at the ‘She Moves, She Leads, We Win’ national symposium in Wellington.
In her personal life, she recently completed her Post Graduate Diploma in Health Sciences (Human Nutrition) with distinction; is working towards her masters’ degree; and has been training for the Buller Half Marathon in preparation for the Breca Wanaka endurance swimming and running event.
Community and Public Health West Coast Team Leader Freedom Preston says Jade is “a real gem”.
“She is clearly achieving positive change in community settings, and with her strong attributes of leadership, Jade will achieve a great deal more. It’s good to know we can attract and retain such talented young people on the Coast.”
Ms Winter is “stoked” to be selected for the Oceanic course.
“It will be great to be among future thinkers from all sorts of backgrounds – academia, research, government and industry. I’m sure I’ll pick up some ideas that I will be able to introduce on the West Coast, and there might be things happening here that are of great interest to other people operating in rural areas.”
