Te Puna Ora O Mataatua has been fortunate to have Barbara Armstrong join our team to learn from her experience with the different services as well as sharing her knowledge and experience with our staff and clients.  Barbara is a masters scholar at the University of Northern British Columbia, Canada, and as part of the Cross Cultural Indigenous Knowledge Exchange CCIKE programme she is here in Whakatane on an internship.  Barbara is a nurse with fourteen years of experience mainly in nursing aged people.  We have also arranged for her to spend her last week in New Zealand at the Whakatane Hospital with the Te Pou Kokiri team.
