Homes and communities are central to our health. This presentation, based on doctoral research by health psychologist Amber Logan, explores the relationship between health and wellness, and home and community for whanau Māori. The research, supervised by Philippa Howden-Chapman, Hera Cook and Keri Lawson - Te Aho, seeks to both add Māori voices and to develop new perspectives on how to develop housing that promotes health and strengthens individuals, families and communities. Included is an examination of factors that create and sustain healthy homes and communities as told by members of Māori whānau living in Hawke’s Bay. The information presented draws together past, present and future and paints a picture of what is important for families and communities to thrive.
Amber Logan is a doctoral student and Professional Practice Fellow with the University of Otago, Wellington. She has broad experience in M?ori and indigenous health and development, both in New Zealand and internationally. She is a mother of five and of Ngāti Kahungunu descent.
