I invite fellow doctor and friend Dr Ailsa Lumsden - a training oncologist in London - onto the podcast. I met Ailsa a couple of years ago at a lifestyle medicine conference and since then we’ve become really good friends.
On this episode, we discuss
Since qualifying with a medical degree with honors in 2005 Ailsa has been working as a doctor in the NHS. Over the last 13 years her training has focused on managing cancer (medical oncology). In 2016 she was awarded a PhD in molecular biology for her thesis on prostate cancer and microRNAs at Imperial College London. Her own journey managing her chronic illness has made her very a passionate advocate of exercise, nutrition and the role that a healthy lifestyle can play in treating disease. Active on social media - she promotes healthy living as a way to prevent cancer and also demonstrate the realities of juggling life as a cancer doctor and a mother of young children
