FIGHTING CANCER IS TOUGH
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER!
From the Physician’s Desk….Queen, Your Clinician and Cancer Advocate!
Hi! My name is Dr. Williams, a.k.a Queen, your family friendly cancer Doc! I am the Senior Lecturer for Questions 4 Cancer Doctors and also maintain this blog for Questions 4 Cancer Doctors. Thank you for stopping by!
I grew up in Kingston, Jamaica and shortly after graduating high school, was blessed to immigrate to the USA. After working a few jobs, enlisting in the United States Military as a Nuclear Biological and Chemical (NBC) Specialist seemed a suitable option. Once my military enlisted service was completed, my education continued at Rutgers University (Go Scarlet Knight!) in New Brunswick NJ. After graduating Rutgers University with Honors, Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry, this was immediately followed by medical school. The selection process for Residency Training program in Oncology (cancer) in Chicago, IL was competitive, but this dream too, was also realized in 2004.
BIRTH OF PATIENT ADVOCACY
It was during my time in Chicago that a focus on patient advocacy began to take shape. The end of Residency was the end of 13 long years of formal education that began at Rutgers University and I was eager to start giving back too. By encouraging understanding of the difficult topic of Cancer through various platforms (Dispelling Cancer Myths on Wellness Wednesday on the syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, D.C. Justice Radio – community education, church leadership cancer counseling strategies, International health conferences, etc.,) addressing the cancer care health disparity began to take form.
From my humble beginnings in Kingston, Jamaica to where I am today, it is indeed a blessing to serve others on a larger scale. My goal is to continually educate and advocate for our cancer patients…believing, hoping, knowing I can make a difference! It is my prayer that these blogs are a blessing to you. Many thanks to Questions 4 Cancer Doctors for allowing me the opportunity to blog about my passion
