Congratulations to 2022 Braemar Charitable Trust Bachelor of Health Scholarship recipient, Maia Gardiner

We are really thrilled that Maia Gardiner who was the 2022 Braemar Charitable Trust Bachelor of Health Scholarship recipient, has been appointed as a Community Care Coordinator in the Bowel Screening Team at Te Whatu ora. Maia made a significant contribution to Braemar during her summer internship, and we wish Maia all the very best with her new role and look forward to seeing the valuable contribution we are sure Maia will make to improving health outcomes in the future. Here are some reflections form Maia regarding the value of both her scholarship and internship, at Braemar.

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to complete an internship at Braemar Hospital. The experience has allowed me to enhance my personal and professional skills significantly. It has been a pleasure to be involved with kaupapa that align with my interest as they have enabled me to develop a range of new skills.

Thank you to the Braemar Charitable Trust for awarding me the 2022 Health scholarship. I would like to extend a special thank you to Paula for designing an impactful internship that has contributed toward my personal and professional growth. Lastly, I am humbled by the hospitality and care I have received, and I appreciate Fiona's continued inclusion for me at Braemar.

I am thrilled to announce that I am now working at Te Whatu Ora in Lu-ana Ngatai's (Braemar Trustee) Bowel Screening Team as a Community Care Coordinator. This position has been made possible by the valuable connections I made during my internship at Braemar. I am also excited to share that I have connected with Dr Ruth Tan and will be working with her to develop a rangatahi (youth) programme in Waikato to educate and encourage rangatahi Māori to pursue a career in health. 

The successful 2023 Bachelor of Health and Bachelor of Nurisng scholarship recipients will be announced soon.
