"I came to the Ivan Toms Centre for Men's Health as a volunteer. Even back in the early days, you could not help but admire the work that was being done. After becoming part of the H4M family, I was tasked with data management. It is my job to make sure that the numbers add up." Grant is qualified in Desk Top Publishing and a trained HCT (VCT) and lay counsellor. "We have an incredible team, that truly makes a difference. I can only hope that when I qualify as a medical professional, I too, can change the world one corner at a time."
