Nazik Hammad: Very little is published about African women physicians. Out our new publication on African Women oncologists

Nazik Hammad posted on LinkedIn:

“Very proud of the publication of this unique scholarship. Very little is published about African women physicians. Out our new publication on African Women oncologists: similar challenges to those faced by their counterparts in North America and Europe with added burden of increased workload and social obligations, less mentorship and recognition.

Fierce pride in role played in bringing about change in cancer control and improving outcomes especially for women. We hope this research will generate activism and policy change in all LMICs.”
