Bonita  Comms.HEIC

Communications Officer

Pronouns: she/her

Bonita is an FY3 working as a clinical teaching fellow in Essex. She completed her foundation training in the LNR deanery.

She would like to be part of an endeavour that works to support students and doctors in achieving what they would want to and not be limited by their background. 

Please contact Bonita and Irem if you represent an organisation who would like to collaborate with WPMN.
