Note from Lindsay…
When I was growing up I always wanted to be either a nurse or a teacher. I became a nurse but within a few short years of qualifying I was in the classroom teaching. I’ve never looked back … it is just what I was made to do.
Over the years my natural business acumen grew together with a humanitarian heart for South Africans and Africans alike which cultivated a dream for the establishment of Education for Health Africa. Like all things, there is timing for everything . 2018 heralded the time for a new chapter in occupational health training in South Africa and Africa.
I would like to acknowledge each person who has walked my journey with me to bring me to the place of débuting Education for Health Africa and especially thank those that will partner with me and our team in establishing an authentic and valuable African occupational health training service.
