Introducing Kere Bennett, Public Health Nurse
Hi I’m Kere, I work for Regional Public Health and visit schools in the Hutt Valley Area. I visit Wainuiomata Intermediate most Thursdays, to see the young people, run health education sessions in class rooms and facilitate groups on topics such as wellbeing and health issues. My role is to support young people, whanau and staff with issues of health affect learning. To do this I look at population health and wider issues with prevention and education as key values in my work. I can be contacted by talking to the school office staff or through Regional Public Health 04 5709046.
