Hinerangi’s role as part of the SUDI team is to disseminate the latest research about SUDI with the health workforce staff and Hāpai subscribers. This will ensure that our communities are kept up-to date and informed on the latest research with the objective that this evidence can be implemented to produce tangible outcomes with whānau. She will also work collaboratively with our other Hāpai teams, such as the Tobacco Control Advocacy, to ensure that health and wellbeing of our mokopuna and their whānau are considered holistically.
Hinerangi will also coordinate communications here at Hāpai to ensure that the media, and in effect the wider public are informed about health interventions and outcomes with the aim of keeping whānau educated and aware of the issues impact our communities.
Hinerangi is a former student of the University of Auckland and holds a Science and Arts Conjoint, as well as a Masters Research thesis which centralises the experiences of Māori women and their treaty claims. Hinerangi is a strong advocate for positive and tangible outcomes for whānau, hapu and iwi.
