Governor General Visits the Lab

Last week AUT was fortunate to have the Governor General, Jerry Mateparae visit the university for the first time.  As part of his visit the Sir Mateparae came to the DHW Lab to find out a bit more about the lab and what we've been doing!

The Governor General had the opportunity to hear from our students,  our team at the lab and also the Co-Directors.

Antonio Wan, presented his redesigned neonatal baby bath and Charlotte Dickson went through her interactive picture books for starship outpatient clinics. Both Antonio and Charlotte successfully completed their Bachelor of Design (honours) qualifications in 2015.


Reid Douglas and Byron Thornhill presented on projects that the DHW Lab has worked recently, including the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) relapse guide and the level 8 overbridge concept design at Auckland City Hospital.

Both Co-Directors, Stephen Reay and Justin Kennedy-good focussed on the vision and purpose of the collaboration between the AUT and Auckland District Health Board and their vision for the future of this initiative.
