Dr Andrew Reynolds
From 2-10 October 2017 I participated in the inaugural Oceanic Nutrition Leadership Program (ONLP). The aim of the course was to develop, inspire and connect a new generation of innovative leaders working in the field of nutrition throughout Oceanic countries. I found the course brilliant. The content covered was well delivered and thought provoking, and the people participating were very inspirational.
Attending the course was an incredible experience for me as an early career researcher considering what next. The eight days together was dominated by an ongoing discussion of our role as a professional network in the Oceanic region. Being together for this time, and having a limited connection to the outside world allowed this conversation to develop in ways that showed trust, principles, and respect. The eight days produced a network of individuals happy to work together and help each other on issues relevant to the food environment and health of people in our region. I learnt a lot from the experience and believe it will benefit my work throughout my career. My participation in the course would not of happened without the support of the Nutrition Society of New Zealand.
