Dr. Hanan Al-Shaikh
Since my journey in medicine started and I became a pediatrician, I learned that the art of pediatric medicine is not only about curing disease but most importantly it is about how to amuse these children. Not only are our children the future, they are part of the present too, and so we need to be constant advocates for them at all levels.
