In celebration of International Women’s Day
Welcome to the first episode in our new podcast mini-series Women in Global Oncology.
We’ve released this first episode on the 8th March to coincide with International Women’s Day. This series is our small contribution to the International Women’s Day movement and a celebration of women around the globe practicing oncology.
In these intimate interviews, Eva Segelov and guests delve into the challenges and joys of oncology practice and research in Brazil, India and Mexico. We begin by learning about oncology practice in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with Rachel Riechelmann.
Over the next few days you’ll also hear from Deepa Joseph and Maria Bourlon.
We hope you enjoy today’s episode and share widely, beyond your oncology community.
Thanks for listening
