Inaugural Lecture: Professor Papaarangi Reid

Date: 8 August 2018

Title: Politics, Power and Positionality - prioritising Māori health

Māori health is everyone’s business. It demands understanding of complex multigenerational causal pathways and how health professionals and systems influence Māori health outcomes, for better or worse. It demonstrates how we can’t separate the political from the personal or from the professional.
This lecture reflects on Papaarangi’s academic journey and how inspirational people and life events have influenced her research, teaching and academic life.
