Congratulations to Shehnah Wala our OD student Award winner.
Wala is recognised for her excellent and sustained volunteer activities. In particular, she has given generously of her time over the past 4 years to bring comfort and companionship to those in hospital through her role as a ward assistant.
She has gone on a train many others to do a similar role at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Her numerous hours have helped to ease the hospital experience for many, but Wala reflects that they have greatly enriched her development as a health care practitioner. Thank you, Wala, for your wonderful efforts and thank you to Collins Streets Optometrist for their sponsorship of the award.
