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.
