Congratulations to Waikato University student Rebekah Laurence (Ngāti Unu, Ngāti Maniapoto) on successfully completing the Health Research Council-funded Summer Studentship 2019 worth $5000.

The purpose of the Summer Studentship programme is to introduce research to Māori students undertaking health-related courses.

We are pleased that Rebekah successfully learned key Kaupapa Māori research skills.      

Rebekah’s novel research addressed abortion – an issue of importance to Māori communities in general, and Māori sexual and reproductive health in particular.

Rebekah is beginning a Masters of Social Sciences in Psychology and her Studentship report was titled ‘Māori women and abortion: A kaupapa Māori literature review’.

Te Whāriki Takapou wishes Rebekah every success for her graduate studies.
