Bio statement

I am a research scholar in the Radiology department and a member of the Global Radiology Outreach and Education team at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. After obtaining my MD from the Lebanese University, I worked at the country's busiest public hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. This experience exposed me to the challenges faced by refugees in accessing adequate healthcare and influenced my interest in global health, motivating me to work towards equitable medical access worldwide. I want to leverage my experience at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania to advance radiology services and education through international collaborations.
