I am an university student, majoring in Public Health and Rehabilitation Counseling.
My passion for health care led me to undertake a degree in Health Science, with a double major in Health Promotion and Addiction Studies.
I have educated my friends about Hepatitis B to encourage them to get a blood test and vaccinated.
I grew up with my sister who suffered from autoimmune liver disease, and helped care for my sister and always wanted to do more to help other people with liver disease
My favourite moments are when sharing information, building understanding and answering concerns about COVID-19 and liver health with the Vietnamese Seniors community.
I am also particularly keen about Viral Hepatitis since my uncle, whom I was very close to, was taken away by the disease.
Volunteering is a way I can express gratitude towards a community.
I want to help Vietnamese people and everyone else in Australia to know more about hepatitis B prevention and treatment.
Due to my interest in health promotion, I was keen to gain practical skills by working with expertise of Hepatitis Victoria. I must say, it has been a great experience of learning actual skills which are essential to promote health awareness among communities.
I am a GP in Broadmeadows helping my local community.
When it came to choose an organization my first choice was Hepatitis Victoria because of my interest in health and my nursing background has inspired to become a volunteer.
