Food poverty & child malnutrition is a problematic issue facing Aotearoa, with more than one hundred & sixty thousand Kiwi kids not getting enough adequate food. The ministry of health recently published a report, the household food insecurities among New Zealand child health survey, which found that children in food-insecure households had poorer parent-rated health status, poorer nutrition, as well as reported higher rates of psychological and parenting stress, as well as poorer self-rated health status. Now the strain seems to be on those families living on a low-income budget, where a low-wage economy, alongside very low levels of welfare support, is fuelling this crisis of food poverty. So what is going to be done about this by the Ministry of Health? Louis caught up Dr Sarah Gerritsen of the University of Auckland's faculty of medical & health sciences, who spoke to me on the prevalence of food poverty’s impact, on families in Aotearoa.

Content Warning: Sexual Violence 

Sexual violence and abuse can result in a range of symptoms. Moving through daily and doing what some may consider the mundane can trigger those who have been through sexual trauma. Dental surgeon, Sharonne Zaks has found the experience of receiving dental care can be triggering for those who have been through sexual trauma. She is working to change the process of how people with sexual trauma receive dental care, in her own practice and for others as well. She speaks with 95bFM about how dental work can put patients in spaces where they feel powerless and result in a triggering experience for those who have gone through sexual trauma. She tells us how she works to empower her patients and the important role a dentist can play in this recovery from trauma.

 

If you are interested in finding out more about Sharonne's work you can find videos for survivors of sexual trauma that can guide them through getting trauma-informed care here. You can also find videos for dentists, that give suggestions on how to provide trauma-informed care here. In addition, if you have any questions, you can reach out to Sharonne directly on smile@zaksdental.co.nz.
