On 14 October 2022 we celebrate International Allied Health Professions Day.
MND NSW celebrates the 200,000+ allied health professionals working across Australia and would like to extend a very special - thank you - to all allied health workers supporting people living with MND.
Allied Health Professions Day is an international event celebrating and bringing together the allied health professional community.
We recognise the commitment of allied health workers on the frontline in Australia's response to COVID-19 and the commitment of allied health professionals in continuing to support people living with MND throughout the pandemic.
Good MND practice is underpinned by multidisciplinary care, bringing together a range of allied health professionals, including:
- Occupational Therapist
- Speech Pathologist
- Social Worker
- And many others.
On this day, we celebrate your commitment to the very important work that you do, and we say – Thank You!
