Aboriginal enrolled nurse among recipients of Kidney Health Australia's Operation angel awards

Nurse Verna Newchurch has been honoured by Kidney Health Australia for her work in kidney dialysis with Ceduna District Health Services, South Australia (SA).

Verna Newchurch, an Aboriginal woman originally from Esperance, was the first Aboriginal enrolled nurse to be trained in the dialysis course in Ceduna. She has since been using her skills and knowledge to work with Aboriginal dialysis patients, a commitment which saw her announced as an SA recipient of Kidney Health Australia's Operation angel awards program.

Ms Newchurch was given the award on World Kidney Day on March 8, 2012. The Operation angel awards recognise 'outstanding contribution to the Australian kidney community'. A full list of recipients can be found on Kidney Health Australia's website.
