LIONS CLUB DONATION: Following a request from Belinda Bourne-Wilson Nurse Audiometrist/Primary Health Care Nurse at Grenfell Community Health and Forbes Community Health, Terry Carroll Secretary of the Grenfell Lions Club Inc presented her with a cheque for $289.
Belinda said "I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Grenfell Lions Club for the generous donation for the purchase of a SAS mat for the Grenfell Hospital Gym. This mat has been designed by a physiotherapist to assist patients to visualise where they need to have foot placement when doing balance exercises, squats, tandem standing and tandem stepping.
The Lions Club also was so generous to offer my fees to attend the Audiometry Nurses Association Conference fees which was held this year in Tamworth.
The conference brought together fifty or more Audiometry or Hearing Nurses who work as sole practitioners in NSW. We got to network, attend workshops and listen to seminars presenting current evidence based on practice regarding the hearing health of children and adults."
