In this episode of Radio Smart Talk, we'll talk with Dr. Anne Alaniz, a gynecologic oncologist from WellSpan Health. Besides working here in central Pennsylvania, Alaniz is also helping to build a health clinic in her home country of Malawi.
We'll also hear from Brad Heidrich, a senior associate cancer scientist at Johnson & Johnson whose work has been inspired by his own cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Alaniz says that it's rewarding to help people realize that there's hope for any stage of the cancer journey. Watch the video below to hear her thoughts on hope.
Dr. Alaniz, originally from Malawi, came to the US for education with the help of some doctors. Although she has been in the US for several years treating women in PA, she hasn't forgotten Malawi and plans to use the skills she's gained to change lives there. She is following in the footsteps of her father, who practices medicine in Malawi. And together, she and her father are working hard to build a medical facility there that will specialize in caring for women and children.
