Frances Pekin (NSW) – Member for 5 years
“I joined the AHA because I was learning heaps by attending AHA events.
AHA events include the most up-to-date evidence-based information delivered by extremely skilled and knowledgeable nurses and doctors in the fields of; Infectious Diseases, Hepatology, Gastroenterology and Drug and Alcohol.
I learn from hearing how others provide their services and problem solve. I have contacted many AHA members to refer clients and to ask for information or advice. I have learned even more since joining the AHA Education Committee.
It’s like fast-tracking your knowledge and skills by staying in touch with the network of AHA members.”
