White Pages Covers Program
Calling all Aussie health heroes
May 28, 2012
Sensis wants to hear from people across Australia who are making their communities healthier, as part of its annual call out for inspiring people to feature on the covers of its phone books.
Whether they’re tireless charity fundraisers, ingenious doctors or warm-hearted volunteers, Sensis is searching for health care heroes to feature on the cover of next year’s Yellow Pages® and White Pages® Books under the 2013/14 theme Keeping Our Communities Healthy.
White Pages® Product Manager Sarah Simpson said, “Every Australian understands the value of good health. At the heart of Australia’s health care industry are the selfless men and women who devote their time to improving others’ quality of life.
“We want to celebrate those individuals keeping our communities healthy, whether it’s through raising funds for health-related charities, initiating support groups, promoting preventative health care messages or pioneering a major medical breakthrough.”
Telstra Victorian Business Women of the Year, Shelly Park, chief executive of Victoria’s largest public health service Southern Health, commended the theme for recognising those whose work is often underappreciated, despite being so essential in every community.
“Health care workers and those who support the health care industry are trusted with an incredibly high level of responsibility – to preserve and promote life – and they often do so under very difficult circumstances. The theme Keeping Our Communities Healthy is exactly what everyone in the industry strives to achieve,” Ms Park said.
