FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 18, 2016 – ATLANTA – Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) welcomes Hadiyah-Nicole Green, Ph.D. as assistant professor in the department of physiology. In addition to her faculty role, Green will continue work that developed from patent-pending technologies, including a 3-in-1 system for early detection, targeting, a selective treatment of malignant tumors, and a nanoparticle-enabled 10-minute laser treatment that induces 100% tumor regression. She was recently awarded a $1.1 million HBCU-Research Scientist Training Program Career Development Award from the Biomedical Laboratory Research and Development Service of the VA Office of Research and Development. Green will start at MSM on April 4, 2016.

“Dr. Green’s ground-breaking research is developing revolutionary technologies that could result in life-saving alternatives for people fighting cancer,” Sandra Harris-Hooker, Ph.D., vice president and executive dean or research and academic administration. “We welcome her diversity of thought to not only help in the education of the next generation of providers, but to partner with our community of researchers in the advancement of health equity.”

Green comes to MSM from Tuskegee University, where she served as an assistant professor in the department of physics with adjunct appointments in the departments of biological sciences and materials science engineering.  She is a multi-disciplinary physicist who specializes in nanobiophotonics and targeted cancer therapeutics, using lasers, nanoparticles, and antibodies to develop biomarker-specific platforms to target, image, and treat malignant tumors including head and neck and women’s cancers.

Green completed her bachelor of science in physics with a concentration in optics and minor in mathematics from Alabama A&M University in 1999. She received her master of science in physics with a concentration in Nanobiophotonics in 2009 and her Ph.D. in physics in 2012 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). As a student, she received $300,000 in scholarships and fellowships, including the National Physical Science Consortium Fellowship, National Science Foundation Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowship, David and Lucille Packard Foundation Fellowship and AAMU Presidential Scholarship.

“April Showers Bring May Flowers”

Standard

amazingdesigns.comImage credit: amazingdesigns.com

Transitioning from April to May was great for I Will Survive, Inc. We had our amazing #IWSribboncuttingceremony on April 18, 2015 and Mayor Pittman proclaimed the day to now be known as the “I Will Survive” day. What an honor to all those who are battling breast cancer and all those who survived. Mothers, fathers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, brothers, daughters, sons… a special moment to honor those who lost the fight against breast cancer as well. Karen Palmer, was born on April 18, 1952 and gave birth to 5 children before the tender age of 38 when she had a final lung failure due to the malignant tumor spreading.

Rain was in the forecast and our new building (donated for one year) was not large enough to bring everyone inside for the ceremony. We opened with Pastor Cail and the rain moved out of the clouds. God shed light through the rays of the sun and the gloomy day became bright. It was a joyous day. $523 dollars was raised to help fund our programs and we hope to have our Office Manager and Receptionist hired soon to help us run our programs out of a building we can now call home.

Show your mothers love, not only on Mother’s day coming up, but cherish them everyday. We do not know how long they have on this earth. Kiss them, hug them, tell them that you love them, and appreciate them. For I, Anisa Palmer, founder of I Will Survive, Inc., nonprofit organization for breast cancer awareness through education and funding in lower-income communities, wish that I spent more time doing that in the short amount of years that I had my dear mother, Karen Palmer, by my side.

And rain on our future mothers so they can blossom into magnificent women. Inspire them to be community leaders and women of virtue. Give them knowledge to help them succeed. Mentor them. Teach them. Lead them. And support them as we continue to “Support the Fighters”.
