Fulbright Scholar: Terry Vik, MD
Pediatric hematologist-oncologist Terry Vik, MD, spent several months in Eldoret in 2020 and 2021 through a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship.
The award enabled him to train the first class of pediatric hematology-oncology fellows in Kenya, while also conducting research to demonstrate the lack of diagnosis of childhood cancers.
His latest published papers include research on Wilms tumors, pediatric acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, multiple myeloma, and more.
While there, he also developed additional training resources and worked to improve the general medical knowledge of childhood cancer in communities across western Kenya.
Dr. Vik is a member of the cancer center’s Cancer Prevention and Control research program.
