By Apricus Health

8th March 2024

Today, on International Women's Day 2024, we at Apricus Health join the global community in celebrating the incredible achievements and contributions of women worldwide. This year's theme, "Inspire Inclusion," resonates deeply with us as we reflect on the women who have shaped our lives and empowered us to make a difference.
As we gathered as a team to mark this special occasion, we took a moment to acknowledge and pay tribute to the remarkable women who have influenced us personally and professionally. From nurturing mothers to inspiring mentors, their stories serve as a testament to the resilience, strength, and compassion of women everywhere
Jenny Lye, our Administration Team Leader and Finance Manager, shared her heartfelt tribute to her mother, a true example of selflessness and unwavering love. Despite facing her own battles with breast cancer, Jenny's mother remained devoted to caring for her husband, never once faltering in her commitment to her family.

Laura Edmonds, our dedicated Graduate Occupational Therapist, drew inspiration from her mother's remarkable juggling act of balancing work, study, and family responsibilities. Her mother's determination and resilience serve as a shining example of what it means to be a true wonder woman.
Cassandra Chiesa, our Head of Clinical Services and Co-Founder, fondly remembers Kerry Stingel from Cairns Occupational Therapy, whose passion for hand therapy and dedication to evidence-based practice left a lasting impression on her career journey.

Emily Adams, our Administration Assistant, reflects on her mother's courage and perseverance in the face of adversity. Despite battling a muscle disease, Emily's mother never wavered in her commitment to her family, serving as a beacon of strength and resilience.
As we shared these heartfelt stories, we also indulged in some sweet treats – cupcakes from Sweet Freedom Bakehouse to mark the occasion and celebrate the achievements of women everywhere.
This International Women's Day, let us continue to honor the women who have paved the way for us, and let us pledge to uplift and empower the women who will follow in our footsteps. Together, we can create a more inclusive and equitable world for all.

Happy International Women's Day from the team at Apricus Health!
