My career so far has enhanced my communication and engagement skills which has always been something I was interested in. I have always wanted to work for communities and assist with promoting health and wellbeing. My experiences so far have enabled me to do so and I look forward to many other opportunities to serve communities in the future.
My name is Debbie Berkoh, and I am in my 3rd year of Uni. I am studying Health Science at Deakin University.
I am a Master of Public Health student from Monash University. I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing Sciences in Lebanon. My goal is to leverage both my nursing and public health competencies to promote the health and well-being of communities, diminish health disparities, and enhance the overall health outcome of the population.
I am a Master of Public Health graduate from the University of Melbourne. I completed my Bachelor Degree in Dental Surgery in India. Shortly after my graduation, I undertook a certificate course, 'International Women’s Health and Human Rights' that sparked my interest in public health. My dream is to utilise my skills and knowledge to help communities and reduce health inequities.

Kimsea Lim speaks on topics such as the diagnosis process, treatments he has received, and his quality of life living with Hepatitis B.
Viral hepatitis is an important health care problem in Australia. We now have effective treatments that can significantly reduce morbidity, mortality and transmission. Health care providers might be unaware that some patients they care for might be living with viral hepatitis.
Dr. Thomas Tu is the founder of HepBCommunity.org. He is a scientist specialising in molecular biology research for hepatitis B.
I first learned about hepatitis as a nurse and back then the treatment was nothing like it is now, I have seen the impact that hepatitis has had on people. My priority is to try and educate my clients without prejudice and see the whole person, not just the diagnosis.
