As the new President of NOHS, Thuy Dung couldn’t hide her excitement as she had the chance to share her opinions and visions for new activities. After joining the network as the General Secretary, at the beginning of 2023, Dung proactively proposed the establishment of VinHEALS. She wanted to form a connection between the Network and the university, helping to connect VinUni with other medical universities across the country.

“One of the key goals of NOHS in this term is to promote international exchange programs for medical and nursing students, supporting them with many opportunities to participate in research or clinical internships abroad. Additionally, we also want to create a platform to help NOHS members develop soft skills through activities or hobby-themed talk shows, helping everyone bond more and have more energy after stressful hours of classes,” Thuy Dung shared.

Congratulations to Thuy Dung on this impressive start, and we hope that you will continue to achieve new accomplishments with NOHS in this term!
