A Cancer Centre with a heart: Kudos, Dr Raghunadha Rao!
You would get a good architect, good engineering team, select and order the right equipment, look for the best staff, and start constructing, wouldn’t you?
Most people would. But not Dr Raghunadha Rao. He did all that, but at the same time, he also started seeing patients. Often, with the patient under a tree, an I.V. infusion set hanging from a low branch. Then he brought in portable cabins made out of discarded containers.
That is not all. He also brought in one of the best palliative care physicians in the country, Dr Vidya Viswanath, and simply integrated palliative care into cancer care.
May your tribe increase, Dr Raghunadha Rao.
