Happy Chinese New Year, the Year of the Monkey!
Auckland Chinese Medical Association is having a stall at the 2016 Chinese New Year Festival and Market Day at ASB Showgrounds, 217 Greenlane West, on Saturday 23rd January from 9.30am to 4.00pm.
Our last event of the year is a fun indoor activity, great for the kids and energetic adults. Jump involves jumping and somersaulting on trampolines, into foam pits, dunking on hoops and onto walls and is designed to suit all sorts of skill levels. If you have been to Jump before, please bring along your purple Jump socks. Although it is fun, it is still quite an intense physical activity so please do not come if you have any heart conditions, spinal issues, are prone to vertigo or motion sickness, are pregnant, or have lower limb issues. Visit their website: http://www.jumpwithus.co.nz/about-jump/ for more information. Please contact our Social Rep Joey if you are interested at least 48 hours in advance. We will have pizza and drinks at the end so you can replenish all the spent energy!

ACCMA Annual Conference, Queens Birthday Weekend – Sydney (FRI 6 – SUN 8 JUN)
ACMA (Australian Chinese Medical Association) hosted the 2015 ACCMA Annual Conference at the new Intercontinental Hotel at Double Bay, Sydney during the Australian Queen's Birthday long weekend (6-8th June 2015).
We had two representatives from NZ - Dr Wilson Young and Dr Carlos Lam attend as representatives of the Auckland Chinese Medical Association (and NZ as a whole). We were warmly welcomed by the NSW branch of ACMA and were treated to a beautiful buffet on the Saturday night at the tantalizing Cafe Mix in the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney. The next morning and afternoon was filled with interesting medical talks from all manner of disciplines including Traditional Chinese Medicine to Dietetics. This was followed by pre-dinner drinks and a lovely sit-down dinner at the Intercontinental Double Bay dining hall where we were entertained to some Chinese and English songs by a lovely Australian-Chinese singer. Overall the Conference was a success and next year it will be our turn to host it in Auckland.
