Health Research Partnerships
It was awesome to be a part of a special day last week in the rohe of Ngati Porou with the launch of their new community based research centre "Te Rangawairua o Paratene Ngata".

This was the vision of the late Dr Paratene Ngata, to bring research into communities and for it to be driven by the people for the people in order to improve future health outcomes.

The support of the Maurice Wilkins Research Centre along with both Otago and Auckland Universities has been invaluable.

This comes at a good time with the launch of Kaitaia's very own health research centre "Waharoa ki te Toi" being next week (17th of August) 5pm at Kaitaia hospital. It is an open invite to the public where we are explaining what research will be coming to kaitaia and the benefits it can bring to our community.

Nau mai kake mai!
