Dr. Tarek Salah Assi, son of the southern town of Dweir, made a remarkable achievement, receiving the first place award in the European Commission on Cancer's Examination for 2018.
Dr. Assi received his award during the annual congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), which was held this year in Barcelona, Spain, between September 27 and October 1, 2019.
The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) describes itself as Europe’s leading non-profit medical oncology organization, a membership-based society of 800 expert committee members and more than 23,000 oncology professionals worldwide.
The oncology examination, which our Lebanese doctor undertook, is considered part of the recognition of related competence in various European countries. He participated along with 400+ oncologists from across the world, and he got accredited by the European Cancer Committee for five years.
This year, Lebanese doctors have been earning many prizes and reaping different remarkable accomplishments worldwide. A few weeks ago The Governor of Michigan state Gretchen Whitmer appointed Lebanese-born Dr. Hassan Yehia to the Michigan State Board of Dentistry, becoming the youngest and only Endodontist and Middle Eastern to hold that position.
Around 5 months ago, the Lebanese doctor and professor Khouder Faqih, achieved a first-time scientific and medical breakthrough in the field of surgery in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, after he succeeded in restoring a section of the skull of a 20-year-old girl who was injured in a major accident that had shattered part of her skull.
Earlier in March 2019, and when the entire world was shaken by the devastating terrorist attack that killed 50 people in a mass shooting in New Zealand, Lebanese Doctor Adib Khanafer made headlines worldwide for saving the life of a four-year-old child.
Moreover, on March 19, 2019, Doctor Joseph Adib Khalil, son of the Lebanese village of Mayrouba in the mountain of Kessrwan, was honored with the title "THE BEST OF BEST" of 2019 in the field of dentistry in Washington D.C., United-States.
