Maria Poynter

Medical Officer

I joined the ARPHS team in 2019 as a public health medicine specialist and medical officer of health. Prior to that, I worked primarily in Wellington at the Health Quality & Safety Commission, Centre for Public Health Research, and Regional Public Health. Within public health, I am passionate about equity and health-enabling system design and am currently a Council member for the New Zealand College of Public Health Medicine. Outside of health, I am energised by my family, cooking and time outdoors.
