    I think that the UAE cancer Congress is growing in scientific strength every year. The quality of the lectures and width of the discussions is excellent. It's becoming a must attend meeting in the gulf cancer scene. Kudos to Dr. Shaheenah and her team for single handedly spearheading and mentoring it.
