HEP Hero Natalie Abboud

Natalie Abboud

Mayor of Moreland City Council

As the Mayor of Moreland I feel becoming a HEP Hero is a good thing to do as an elected representative and role model for the city. I am 46, married with three sons and living in Coburg. I love to spend time in the garden.

Knowing what people are up to and how they form part of the complex fabric of our society is something that interests me. I grew up in Carlton in the 70’s and 80’s so being in a very multicultural city and living in Moreland makes me feel right at home.

As the Mayor of Moreland I feel becoming a HEP Hero is a good thing to do as an elected representative and role model for the city.

I feel that its very important to support people and break down misunderstanding and stigma wherever I can.

I think that as a leader I can use my voice to support and contribute to valuable conversations about hepatitis. Sharing stories helps to promote understanding and that is very important.

Natalie’s message to others…

“Help us to raise awareness and break down stigma about hepatitis. All it takes is conversation and an open mind.”
