John Parsons is an Associate Professor at the University of Auckland and the inaugural Bupa Fellow in Allied Health Research. John is passionate about health services tailored to the needs of older people across hospital, community and aged care. During COVID lockdown John brought together a dedicated team of experts to develop and produce a TV Show, Healthy for Life, that was broadcast on TV1. The show sought to support older people at risk of a loss of independence.
