Lecture Title: "Public health and communities: people, power and policy."

Sarah’s public health research concentrates on health and disability outcomes, policy, and equity. She was a Harkness Fellow (2011-12) at The University of Chicago (US) investigating health care integration; and is an international EuroQol Group member.

As Director of the Injury Prevention Research Unit Sarah’s research often focuses on injury, for which she acknowledges Health Research Council funding.

Sarah enjoys working with colleagues, students, and the public. She likes to understand difficult and interesting problems, including how to support New Zealanders with serious illnesses. Can this be done in a way similar to ACC’s support for injured people; how to ensure equitable post-injury outcomes for all New Zealanders including for injured Māori and for vulnerable workers; and how to effectively and genuinely engage as communities, whānau and patients to improve our health system.
