About Preeti

I have a background in genetics and molecular biology, where I also taught at a University and worked as a Food Analyst. I am now pursuing a Master’s in Public Health and working on various public health research projects.

I’m passionate about finding solutions to complex public health challenges.

What inspired you to become a LiverWELL volunteer?

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, especially hepatitis.

My favorite LiverWELL sessions or moments.

Having worked in the not-for-profit space in different countries, I feel lucky to be working with an organisation that is so passionate about their cause, helping people with hepatitis and other liver health concerns.

I have been working with the HEPReady workforce training team, to collect data to evaluate LiverWELL’s training programs.

What tips do you have for new volunteers?

Whether it is voluntary or paid work, commit to the cause wholeheartedly, work hard and focus on the opportunity provided to you.
