Volunteer of the Month, July 2019
I am passionate about promoting the importance of health literacy and raising the awareness of disease prevention in our community. Through my postgraduate study in public health, I developed the ability to integrate my trilingual and research skills to contribute to population health.
Hepatitis Victoria’s devoted work for the marginalised communities aligned with my values. I was interested in being a volunteer to learn about strategies to co-design promotional and engagement events with the service targets.
I was provided with an invaluable opportunity to learn from the people with a lived experience of hepatitis C. Their personal stories provided me with great insight into developing a research proposal about hepatitis C reinfection.
My best advice is to be flexible and open to different opportunities in Hepatitis Victoria. Your amazing skills will be valued and further developed with the support of your colleagues here.
We welcome people from all cultures, nationalities and religions. Being inclusive and providing equitable services is our commitment.
