In 2010 Dr Glenis Mark received a Ngāpuhi Education Scholarship for her PhD studies in Health Psychology through the School of Psychology at Massey University. Dr Mark acknowledged the Rūnanga’s financial support and presented a copy of her PhD thesis in appreciation. Titled ‘Rongoā Māori (Traditional Māori healing) through the eyes of Māori healers: Sharing the Healing while Keeping the Tapu’, Dr Mark explains that her research explored the nature of rongoā Māori healing because it is an inherently Māori cultural healing method that is able to address the physical, cultural, whānau, mental and spiritual dimensions of health and illness.
I was very grateful to receive the scholarship all those years ago.
Dr Glenis Mark
