Clinician scientist | Entrepreneur | Women’s rights & education advocate
Hello, I am Dr Hannah Nazri. I am an NIHR–funded Academic Clinical Fellow and specialty trainee doctor in obstetrics & gynaecology at the University of Warwick, following the completion of my DPhil in endometriosis research at the University of Oxford.
As the Equality Working Group Lead in Europe for the Royal Commonwealth Society and 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 with The Kalsom Movement, a Malaysian student-led education charity, 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 medical 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.
