Nazik Hammad: An honour to be part of the 2024 Best Health for Black Women virtual event

Nazik Hammad shared a post by Women’s College Hospital, on LinkedIn:

“Canadian Black women getting together as patients and physicians discussing metastatic breast cancer. It is an honour to be part of this panel. Can’t wait to continue to learn from Black women patients and advocates and discuss with them together with my amazing colleague April Swoboda, M.D. and the moderation of the wise and tireless leader, Dr.Aisha Lofters.

Quoting Women’s College Hospital‘s post:

“Introducing the Breast Cancer panel at the 2024 Best Health for Black Women virtual event!

Join us to hear a conversation between medical oncologists Dr. April Swoboda, M.D. and Dr. Nazik Hammad, along with patient partners Francine and Dianne, who will share their experiences of living with metastatic breast cancer. WCH family physician Dr. Aisha Lofters will moderate the panel.

The evening will also feature a keynote presentation on Lung Cancer and a panel conversation on Mental Health – with information and resources tailored to speak to the unique experiences of Black women. ”
