We’re pleased to welcome Dr Mena Shaher, who will guide us through October Breast cancer awareness month and explain us the fundamental role of prevention in saving lives.
Highly experienced radiologist with a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery, a Master’s degree in Radiodiagnosis and Intervention from Ain Shams, the most prestigious University in Cairo, and an Advanced Hospital Management Diploma from the Canadian International Academy for advanced studies, Dr Mena Shaher has dedicated the last 11 years of her practice to Breast Imaging and Breast Intervention radiology.
In 2018, she arrived in the UAE with the mandate to build from scratch the Breast Unit of Al Zahra Hospital in Sharjah. It is here that she now assists and supports up to 10.000 patients per year, with highs of 50 patients a day during crucial months like October! Dr Shaher is a member of the European Society of Breast Imaging and the American College of Radiology and is highly involved in running campaigns and initiatives to build awareness. As a doctor, a woman, and the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, Dr Mena has experienced first-hand how prevention has helped to increase survival rate and life expectancy in Breast Cancer patients thanks to early detection.
So, let’s join Dr. Mena and discover what all of this means and what all of us should do, starting with booking our next screening!
