Purpose of the Programme Advisory Group
The Programme Advisory Group (PAG) provides high level expert advice to the Programme Director and research team on research and policy priorities.
The group comprises those with expertise in Māori health, Pacific health, food standards, food policy, advocacy, health promotion and marketing. Members are appointed for their individual expertise, rather than as members of the organisations with which they are involved or employed. Professors Cliona Ni Mhurchu, Boyd Swinburn and Tony Blakely will also attend and lead meetings.
