“Success is not the work of one, but the work of many” 

Haylea Rodgers

2022 Senior Intern

Haylea is finishing a Bachelor of Medical Sciences with Honours at the University of Otago before continuing her medical placement in Christchurch in 2023. “My passion for medicine and the incredible mysteries of the human body has brought many opportunities, the current one being medical research. I planned to return home with my kete of knowledge and help improve community health outcomes. Mātai has allowed this dream to become a reality sooner than I imagined. I am looking forward to playing a part in research that will enable medicine to progress equitably.”
