Science is something I have always found interesting. In high school, I developed a fascination with genetics and molecular biology. But I had also always had an interest in helping my community and doing things to benefit others. By the time I was in medical school, these two interests kept leading me toward Radiation Oncology as a specialty. Fighting cancer is both a scientific and human endeavor. My objective is to win the fight by bringing both science and compassion to that struggle. And the truth is that they aren't separate things. The science of fighting cancer definitely involves caring for the people I treat.
