Nurse practitioner Sue Hegarty had the honour to receive the 2022 HESTA Nurse of the Year award.
She was one of the three nominated nurses this year and won because of her exceptional contribution to the not-for-profit organisation Ovarian Cancer Australia.
"It was an absolute honour - the competition was incredible," she says.
"It was such a lovely acknowledgment of the work we've done at Ovarian Cancer Australia in supporting women."
Aside from her tireless advocacy to help women with ovarian cancer, she also spearheaded the first Australian telehealth program.
