Patient Support Manager
Reema joined Cancerkin in February 2013, after working for the Health Research Authority supporting Research Ethics Committees. A Masters graduate who obtained a Distinction in MSc. Health Psychology at City University (2009), her dissertation explored people’s experience of Parkinson’s and focused on participant photography and semi-structured interviews. This brought out her interest in exploring the creative side of health psychology research. Her particular interests lie in patient care and the psychological effects of illness.
After graduation, Reema volunteered as a Research Assistant at the London Art Therapy Centre. She assisted in the organisation and promotion of the first annual summer art exhibition and the centre’s open days. She then began working as a Health Promoter, performing NHS Health Checks in community outreach events to help increase early identification of cardiovascular disease.
Reema has a strong interest in travelling the world and has had many memorable experiences abroad. Her aim is to visit most of Europe and India. She also hopes re-visit South East Asia to experience the amazing cuisines and cultures from that part of the world.
Reema feels privileged to be working for Cancerkin and meeting so many wonderful people. She finds it very rewarding to be able to offer support to people who are affected by breast cancer
