Delegation visit from Vietnam

November 2013

For a week in late October, Women’s College Research Institute welcomed a delegation of seven physicians from the National Cancer Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam. The visitors, specialists in the treatment of breast and gynecologic cancer, participated in clinical tours and inter-disciplinary educational sessions with staff and trainees at Women’s College Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital, and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. Dr. Le Hong Quang, one of the visiting physicians, gave a presentation about cancer control in Vietnam at Women’s College Research Institute’s research development rounds.

“Their visit was a tremendous opportunity to further our collaborations in research, education and training in cancer care for women, and to spark innovative ideas for cancer control here in Canada,” says Dr. Ophira Ginsburg, scientist at Women’s College Research Institute, who coordinated their visit.
