Work at Level 3 focuses on investigating significant health and socio-ecological issues in New Zealand and applying the concepts of ethics, health promotion and social justice to design strategies that will lead to more equitable health outcomes for New Zealanders. Activities will include individual and group research, group discussion, gathering data, case studies, assignments, and learning journals.
