What is your role as a GO volunteer?
I lead and organize tumour boards between Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QECH), an oncology referral hospital in Malawi, and Boston-based physicians. I am also involved with other efforts in the collaboration including a project to improve the videoconferencing infrastructure at QECH.
When you’re working on a GO project, what most energizes you and why?
The possibilities; especially with the project that I work on where there is so much space to grow and so much potentially impactful work to be done. While this can be daunting, it is encouraging to know that what we are doing could measurably and positively affect the incredible work that the QECH physicians already do.
What do you gain from this experience?
Thank you, Bokang, for your incredible service and dedication to GO's mission. Your leadership has helped GO engage successfully in needed knowledge exchange between oncologists in Boston and Malawi.
