IPOS Member Profile: Zahra R. Haji (Kenya)

27 Jun 2024 3:41 PM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

Zahra is responsible for the implementation of the Distress Assessment & Response Tool (DART) at The Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya. She has tailored DART for use in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), with a specific focus on Kenya. Zahra has translated and culturally adapted DART into Swahili to ensure its relevance to the Kenyan population. Furthermore, she has successfully integrated DART into Meditech, the AKU Electronic Health Record (EHR) system, and has undergone training in Managing Cancer and Living Meaningful (CALM) intervention. Currently, she is working towards certification in Genetic Counseling as part of the AKU-MedGenome partnership. Zahra's primary role involves investigating the bidirectional relationship between mental health and cancer.

Interesting fact - I have a talent for unintentionally killing succulents and cactuses all the time!
