Krista Nichola is a vet nurse from Sydney, Australia who participated in the Mission Rabies project in Sri Lanka in 2017, joining the team vaccinating dogs with the aim of eliminating this deadly disease.

Earlier this month, she presented at the VNCA (Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia) Conference in Adelaide, South Australia. Her presentation aimed to educate Australian Vet Nurses about rabies and the effect this awful virus has on both dogs and people, as well informing Australian nurses about the work Mission Rabies does.

She shared her incredible experience on our project, answered any rabies related questions and discussed how the Mission Rabies programme works and how to get involved. She spent the entirety of the three days at the conference proudly adorned in her Mission Rabies shirt and spoke to many nurses about the work Mission Rabies does and why it is so important.

She has now been invited to present at the Hills Science VNA weekend on the Gold Coast, Queensland in July, about rabies and Mission Rabies and hopefully this will encourage more Australian Vet Nurses to get involved!

We'd like to extend a huge thank you to Krista for sharing her experiernce and spread the word about our programmes and the importance of vaccination campaigns. Together, we can eliminate rabies!
