Maria Poynter

Clinical Director

I am the clinical director for the Auckland Regional Public Health. In my role as clinical director, and in collaboration with the director and general manager, I have a responsibility for the overall clinical performance of the service.

I joined the ARPHS 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. I have previously been a Council member for the New Zealand College of Public Health Medicine. Within public health, I am passionate about equity and health-enabling system design. Outside of health, I am energised by my family, cooking and time outdoors.
