A Māori paediatrician on his way to Oxford University says Māori have a lot to offer to international academia.
Te Aro Moxon, the son of Anglican Bishop Sir David Moxon and Māori health advocate Lady Tureiti Moxon, has won a Commonwealth scholarship to study a Masters of Science in global health and epidemiology.
The University of Auckland graduate is also an alumni of Te Panekiretanga o Te Reo Māori.
He says studying abroad will give him a global perspective he can bring back to Aotearoa in his work in child health.
"Because I plan to be in Aotearoa working in paediatrics in the long term I thought to step outside and gain some knowledge from one of the top universities in the world was a good opportunity so I can learn from some of the global experts and work towards reducing health inequities which is my real passion," he says.
