Dr Lance O’Sullivan, AUT Māori Entrepreneur in Residence and founder of The MOKO Foundation is set to reveal his plan for the future of health in New Zealand at his public lecture at AUT on Monday 29 July, 2019.

Dr O’Sullivan is a leading medical innovator pursuing the goal of increasing access to quality health care using emerging digital technologies.

He has been recognised nationally for being a disruptor and voice for ensuring that health care is delivered to the most important of our society.

Dr O’Sullivan created NZ’s first digital health program, iMOKO™ for children across the country which delivers health services to communities of children.

“I hope New Zealand can lead the way in the delivery of innovative models of care that provides more care to more people of higher quality for less cost resulting in a fairer society,” he said.

His awards include 2014 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year, 2013 Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Award, 2013 Public Health Association Health Champion Award and 2013 Māori of the Year Award.
