Hear me out

People who are unfamiliar with audiology may think that audiologists deal with sound equipment, or that we only conduct hearing tests. We definitely do more than this!

Teacher’s Day: No dream too big

When Dr Jenny Loo first stepped into the field of audiology some 20 years ago, she had a simple yet ambitious goal: To nurture and build future generations of audiologists in Singapore.

#CouragetoCareSG: Behind the scenes with a medical technologist

Unlike some of my healthcare colleagues who interact directly with COVID-19 patients, I work behind the scenes, analysing results of test samples to determine if the virus is present in them.

#CouragetoCareSG: Leading the charge as a pharmacist

When COVID-19 struck and the call came for volunteers to join the dormitory medical post team, I hesitated. However, as the virus continued to spread, I felt the need to contribute.

#CouragetoCareSG: Occupational therapist smiles with her eyes

I wasn’t fearful to care for potential COVID-19 cases as an occupational therapist. I thought that it was going to be the same as attending to patients in an isolation ward. My parents who are residing in China were more worried than I was.

Walking the talk

Owing to my days as a Red Cross cadet, my interest in a healthcare career had been piqued at a young age. Medicine or nursing may have seemed like obvious choices, but I wasn't convinced.

Inspiring young minds in speech therapy

It all started when my older sister, a social worker, introduced me to speech therapy and encouraged me to pursue it as my career.

Occupational therapy — not just a job

It all began when Evelyn’s friend was able to engage in personally meaningful activities thanks to the help of an occupational therapist, who taught her how to use a computer again with the help of adaptive equipment.

Breathing life into patients

There were healthcare scholarships for commonly-known professions but what intrigued me was respiratory therapy. The more I read about the profession, the more interested I was.

Going out on a limb to make a difference

I had always wanted to work in the healthcare sector. After some research, I chanced upon an unusual profession that few have heard of: Prosthetist and Orthotist.

Starting out on the right foot

As a young ballerina, I was accustomed to the rigorous training regimen expected of me. Unfortunately, it took a toll on my foot.

The guiding light

The first time I crossed paths with a social worker was just after my A level examinations.

I don't just press buttons!

"Are you going to be a radio DJ (disc jockey)?" I get that a lot when I tell people my course of study.

"It has been a challenging year and a half due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus has thrown Singapore off course, and we now have to adjust to a new normal. Despite the uncertainty, I am proud to see everyone standing in unity and offering help to those in need.
 
We hear of people buying supplies for others whose livelihoods have been uprooted by the pandemic. Hawkers are giving out food to those in need, despite struggling themselves. The Singapore spirit of unity is alive in all of us.
 
To me, healthcare is a noble and humbling field. I’ve been a pharmacist for 16 years, and there is no denying that being a healthcare worker has its ups and downs, especially during the pandemic. However, it is rewarding to know that what we do can make a difference in someone’s life. Everyone in healthcare plays a significant role, be it a nurse in the operating theatre, a porter in the linen room, or an administrative staff. We work as a united team to care for our patients and serve the nation. 
 
My birthday falls on 9 August, and I will be celebrating my birthday with the nation! This year, I will turn 40, which is considered a milestone in anyone’s life. I will take the time to reflect and plan for the road ahead. 
 
This National Day, my sincerest wish for Singapore is for her people to continue to stay united, be strong in the face of adversity and thrive even when things look bleak. Let’s show what true resilience means to the world."
