Dr. Aziza Shad is Humanizing Healthcare

By using teamwork to tackle pediatric cancers

If you can't help someone, don't harm anyone. Do what you can to make the world a better place, one person at a time. 

Dr. Aziza Shad

Dr. Aziza Shad, a pediatric oncologist, was nominated for The Uplifters Podcast by Terri Tomoff, whose son was cared for by Dr. Shad during 5 rounds of cancer treatment, beginning at age two. In episode 15, Terri described the family’s journey through their 27-year battle. In this episode, you’ll hear from Dr. Shad how she approaches caregiving as a team effort that involves families, neighbors, and a holistic crew of care providers. Her well-rounded approach also extends to her work leading The Aslan Project which has transformed health outcomes for pediatric cancer patients in Ethiopia. Dr. Shad's story is a testament to the impact one person can make in the lives of many when we tackle big problems in a community-focused way.

Chances are, most of you reading this aren’t pediatric oncologists, but here’s why I hope you’ll listen. No matter where we find passion and purpose, Dr. Shad shows us that:

  • Empathy is the core skill needed to turn individuals into aligned teams

  • Multidisciplinary support is essential for addressing complex challenges

  • Self-care and healthy boundaries are vital to sustaining the work of uplifting others

  • Everyone has the power to make a difference and give back to their community, no matter how small their contribution may seem
