Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Nurse

Lucy Ralton (SA) – Member for 7 years

“Advocacy for the advancement of the speciality of hepatology nursing and the complementary Australian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) membership are both important factors in my membership of the AHA.

The e-News is a great way to keep in touch with the latest developments. The AHA Summit is an excellent opportunity to meet nurses from around Australia and New Zealand and offers an an intensive professional update.”
