The Home Economics Institute of Australia Inc. (HEIA) is the peak professional body for home economics professionals in Australia. HEIA provides a national focus for home economics and home economists working in education, community health and industry. HEIA cooperates and affiliates with bodies at a state, national and international level concerned with the education of, and advocacy for, families and households in everyday living. HEIA promotes public recognition of the role of home economists, sets professional standards for the practice of home economics and promotes the professional standing of home economists.
A professional learning tour of Turkey has been developed for HEIA members and their partners and friends. Dreaming Turkey Tours is offering members a unique opportunity to travel to Turkey for a food and textile tour. Barish Akbacak will be leading the tour and has been taking groups of all sizes around his beloved Turkey for over 15 years.
Two eleven-day tours are scheduled for June and July 2015.
