Hei Āhuru Mōwai win the Courageous Leadership Award

National Hauora Coalition Awards  

Hei Āhuru Mōwai was both surprised and honoured to be awarded the “Tohu Hautoa”, Courageous Leadership award at the National Hauora Coalitions Mana Whānau Tohutanga Awards evening. The award recognised our leadership in the efforts to reduce the Bowel Screening age for Māori from 60 to 50 years.


This change was widely accepted as an important step toward improving equity for Māori. In accepting the award Dr Nina Scott was quick to acknowledge that the award was not achieved through our efforts alone but by the efforts of so many and that we were very happy to receive this tribute on everyone's behalf.
