Volunteer of the Month, November 2019
My name is Natalie. I am studying Master of Science (Epidemiology) at the University of Melbourne. Studying in a health related subject, I have understood the importance of prevention and raising health awareness of chronic disease.
What inspired me to become a Hepatitis Victoria Volunteer?
I became a volunteer in Hepatitis Victoria because I am particularly interested in hepatitis, topics such as how to prevent hepatitis B in high prevalence populations and the emerging new drugs in hepatitis C are of interest to me.
My favourite Hepatitis Victoria sessions or moments
As a volunteer, I have engaged in several community services and I enjoy spreading information on hepatitis to the community. I have learnt more about the disease as well.
What tips do I have for new volunteers?
I recommend more people becoming a volunteer, and I believe that by training we can all be HEP Ready!
We welcome people from all cultures, nationalities and religions. Being inclusive and providing equitable services is our commitment.
