PHA Seminar: The launch of My Life in Public Health. A memoir from the frontlines of Global Disease Eradication, Children’s Health and Ending Smoking - Dr Murray Laugesen QSO

Public Health Seminar Series presented by Department of Preventive & Social Medicine in association with The Public Health Association Otago/Southland

My Life in Public Health is a memoir of my life in India and New Zealand. I describe my switch from surgery to village health work then to working with the Voluntary Health Association of India. I worked to eradicate smallpox, polio and tetanus; India is now free of these.

In New Zealand medical people wanted smoking controlled. This led to designing the Smokefree Environments Act. Then to the first research on vaping outside of China. This book marks my retirement. However, this election gives us the opportunity to create a Smokefree New Zealand.

Copies of My Life in Public Health available for purchase – $45 (cash only)
