Members and guests of Zonta Club of East Auckland enjoyed another inspiring dinner meeting when they heard from Ann Wheat as the guest speaker.
Ann shared her personal and professional stories while she worked for 20 years as an asthma nurse and educator with Asthma New Zealand.
In this time she has promoted best practice asthma management to patients, GPs, practice nurses, school nurses and teachers.
She is a recent recipient of the first respiratory lifetime service award in the respiratory achievers’ awards. These awards are run by the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ.
It is difficult to assess just how many lives have been impacted because of her work and it was a privilege to acknowledge and thank another woman in our community who is doing great things to enhance the lives of others.
