Gevorg Tamamyan: One of the greatest people I know is running for the ASCO Board Member position

Gevorg Tamamyan, the Editor-in-Chief of OncoDaily and the Head of the Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Armenia, posted on LinkedIn:

“If you are an American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) member and haven’t voted yet, please do! One of the greatest people I know is running for the ASCO Board Member position! Raya Saab, currently is the chief of pediatric oncology and professor at Stanford University School of Medicine! Previously, Raya was the Director of the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL). Besides being an amazing pediatric oncologist and scientist, she is also a wonderful mentor, a great friend, and a motivational leader! For more than 10 years Raya has been the scientific director of the Pediatric Oncology East and Mediterranean (POEM) Group, with 110 pediatric cancer centers from 28 countries. But she was not just the scientific director, she was the one who contributed most to the group, starting from the establishment up to now, and without her, certainly, the group wouldn’t be successful. Thank you, Raya, for what you have done and fingers crossed for the elections!”
