Meet the Women in Oncology board 

Women in Oncology introduces a series of profiles of our Peer Perspective Board members and their reasons for joining the initiative, beginning with Consulting Medical Editor Shikha Jain, MD, FACP.

“A big reason we created this Women in Oncology initiative is to make sure that we are amplifying the voices of women in oncology who are doing phenomenal work, whether it be medical, radiology or surgical oncology,” Jain said. “As you learn more about our Peer Perspective Board and read some of our publications … we would love to hear from you on what you would like to see featured.”
