Fructose in schools study - fISS

The Fructose in Schools Study (FISS) was initiated by the MOKO Foundation in 2017 to rural schools within the Far North. This research is trying to understand more about the rates of absorption of the sugar fructose across the New Zealand population and the effects this has on metabolic health outcomes. The MOKO Foundations role in this program is delivering this initiative to Far North schools as a means to educate students about the science of sugar and importance of health whilst capturing relevant data

Kia Ora e te iwi! Anei he rauemi mō te hunga e hiahiatia nei! Ko tāna he whamārama i ngā āhuatanga, he whakautu hoki i ngā pātai matua e hāngai pū ana ki tēnei rongoa ārai mate ara te Pfizer!

Over the past few weeks I have been working alongside two top Māori and Pasifika researchers Dr Natalie Netzler (virologist) and Chris Puliuvea (Immunologist) translating a presentation providing answers and insights to some of the commonly asked questions and concerns about Covid-19 and the Pfizer vaccine.

Having the presentation in Te Reo Māori aims to add another information point for reo speakers who want to hear it in our indigenous language. This also contributes to one of the aims of Waharoa Ki Te Toi which is to empower Te Iwi Māori in the realm of western science.

Ki te maharahara koe, mātakitaki mai!
