Clinician scientist | Bioentrepreneur | Women’s rights & education advocate
Hello, I am Dr Hannah Nazri. I am a medical doctor and DPhil (PhD) candidate in Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the Nuffield Department of Women’s & Reproductive Health, University of Oxford.
I am the Chair of the Board of Trustees of The Kalsom Movement, a Malaysian student-led education charity, and the Equality Working Group Lead in Europe for the Royal Commonwealth Society. As the Director and Founder of the Malaysian Doctors for Women & Children, I am passionate about ending practices that discriminate against women and children. For my work in youth and education, I was awarded the Associate Fellowship of the Royal Commonwealth Society as a Finalist of the 2015 Queen’s Young Leaders Award by The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Trust. In 2020, I was the finalist of the Women of the Future Award UK for the Commonwealth Category.
I am committed to combining my Obstetrics and Gynaecology career with non-profit work not limited to youth education and women’s rights advocacy.
Let’s talk if this is of any interest to you.
