Brendon is a Māori Pharmacist with a passion for taking health to the people. Brendon understands that the current health system is not designed for Māori and is constantly looking for ways to improve the health outcomes of our tangata whenua. When he is not the Kia Kaha Chemist at marae giving medicines education and performing medication reviews on kaumātua. Brendon enjoys being out in the taiao, our natural environment, whether it be trying to catch waves at Taylor’s Mistake, tramping with friends, or shredding the slopes of our local ski fields.
Brendon feels very privileged to be a part of the #WCNZ team and is excited at the possible outcomes from the study in terms of a more holistic approach to the idea of what community means, and how technology can be used to make a community flourish.
