Raqeebah Agberemi is a recent Masters in Public Health (MPH) graduate. She completed her degree at Imperial College, London in 2017. She has also completed a BSc in Biomedical Science from the University of Brighton.
Throughout her studies, she has developed excellent attention to detail and research skills. Her skills together with biomedical science knowledge and experience of conducting surveys has prepared her to be successful as a Project Worker at MDS UK.
Raqeebah’s main role is to work on the Patient Survey: “UK MDS Patients – Assessing the Needs for Support”, which unfortunately had to be put on hold following the leave of the previous Project Worker at the end of 2015. The survey is not only a vital project for improving the services that MDS UK offers, but also has the potential to influence the provision and quality of care services provided to MDS patients.
In addition with the survey work, Raqeebah also helps in day to day running of the office, distribution of information packs to newly diagnosed patients so as to help raise awareness as well offer support to patients and their families. She is a highly motivated, passionate, enthusiastic and consistently hardworking individual with a keen inquisitiveness in learning and acquiring new skills and she hopes to provide good support to the team and those affected with MDS.
