  2. Hileni Samuel nominated for “Women Who Impacted 2017”

    We wish our Postgraduate Diploma in Diabetes student Sister Hileni Samuel huge congratulations on being nominated as one of Namibia’s “Women Who Impacted 2017” hosted by Namibia’s national newspaper, New Era.

    The nomination comes as a result of her tireless efforts to raise awareness of diabetes, dangers of the condition and methods of care. This has been achieved through numerous outreach programmes throughout Namibia where patients can also receive free screening for diabetes, resulting in 2,103 patients being screened between March and November this year.

    Hileni has also hosted a number of training seminars for 370 medical practitioners, where she shares skills and knowledge of the management and treatment of diabetes. Furthermore, these outreach programmes have been carried out at Sister Samuel’s own expense with no financial assistance.

    A registered nurse by profession specialising in wound and diabetes care, Samuel holds over two decades of experience. Hileni’s aim is to provide quality yet affordable healthcare, particularly to those suffering from complications that do not respond to wound care.

    New Era asked the public to nominate women whose work made a positive impact and touched the lives of those within their communities and inspired Namibian society. These women of outstanding achievement are applauded to celebrate Namibia’s official Women’s day (and Human Rights Day), celebrated annually on 10 December.

    It always delights us to hear of student success stories, and on behalf of everyone at Diploma MSc, we wish Sister Hileni Samuel the best of luck with her studies and in achieving her goals in diabetes and wound care.

    Congratulations, Hileni!
