He uri mokopuna tēnei no Te Whānau a Apanui, Ngāti Porou me Waikato- Tainui hoki.
Teah completed her PhD in Public Health at Massey University, titled “Kaupapa Māori Evaluation: Transforming health literacy”. She evaluated the effectiveness of a heart disease medicines health literacy intervention for Māori who were involved in the programme, exploring the contribution kaupapa Māori theorising may offer to the evaluation of health literacy activities. Teah’s research promotes reclamation of health literacy as a space for Māori to be themselves; a space that is negotiated, adaptive, and shaped by people, whānau, and communities.
