Tatiana Prowell: Medicine is the best job

Tatiana Prowell shared a post by TJ Ducklo, Senior advisor on the Joe Biden 2024 presidential campaign, on X/Twitter:

Medicine is the best job. More power to everyone in science, oncology twitter and patient advocacy who made this a reality.”

Quoting TJ Ducklo’s post:

“Clean scans today and now 46 months in remission — 4 years after this post when I was terrified and didn’t know what came next. Grateful and so lucky, especially to have the friends, colleagues, and family fighting next to me. Important work ahead.”
