Member of the APCaRI training program, Dr. Anais Medina Martin, selected as a remarkable woman for the International Women’s Day at the Caucus Meeting in Edmonton

Last March 8th, 2017 the Legislative Assembly of Alberta held a special session in order to celebrate the International Women’s Day in our province. Some of Elected Members of the Assembly invited one or two women from their constituency with an outstanding story to be celebrated in that special meeting. Among of that exquisite selection, Dr. Anais Medina Martin had the honor to be chosen, together with Mrs. Yvette Labiuk, as a member of the Department of Oncology at the University of Alberta.  This support is again reaffirming the personal potential that we host at the APCaRI.
