EB Nurse Program
Our EB Nurse Sam (pictured below) is still doing an amazing job as a part of DEBRA’s National EB Nurse Program, attending to members in need of specialised, high-quality EB medical care. Thanks to Sam for being such an important resource and friend to all of those people she supports by travelling the country and providing telephone support.
DEBRA’s National EB Nurse Program has been evaluated as being such a valuable service that the program has now been expanded to employ a nurse in Melbourne in 2013, which will be a major boost to families living in Victoria, but will assist families nation-wide.
