Gia Sison will be the featured guest speaker in the next talk that forms part of the Breast Cancer Mosaic Talks (#BCMTalks) series. As a medical professional Dr Sison is herself a breast cancer survivor. Her experiences, both as a patient and physician, will make for a unique and compelling session.
The BCM Talk, a one-hour live Google Hangout session with Dr Sison, will seek to increase awareness around breast cancer using social media as a tool to spread the message and provide support.
Dr. Sison describes herself as a: ‘Hardcore advocate of social media in healthcare, digital health and anything healthcare leadership driven.’ She has long been interacting with global healthcare leaders online via twitter, and her blog ‘Sand and Stone’ (www.giasison.blogspot.com) has proved popular with patients and physicians alike.
Dr Sison is an occupational health expert, earning her Doctor of Medicine degree from UST Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, a master’s degree in occupational health from University of the Philippines and University of Illinois at Chicago. She is currently a consultant to World Health Organization Western Pacific Region and Makati Medical Center.
