Rave Reviews About Mona Hanna-Attisha
Dr. Mona’s visit was outstanding! I personally don't think you'll ever find a speaker as energizing as Dr. Mona. She covered all aspects of medicine and encouraged everyone to read outside their field of interest - a wonderful way to promote interprofessionalism in addition to interdisciplinary team relationships. I wish every person in the health industry had the tenacity, empathy, and optimism Dr. Mona displayed both in her book and at this lecture.
