  1. Hello Dr. King:
    I am a Radiation Oncologist, trained at Wayne State University ( small world!) currently in practice in Florida. I was made aware of your work in Ghana through a mutual friend of ours, Suanne Sandage. I am reaching out to you, to see how I can help patients with cancer through a tele-medicine service through hospitals and health care providers. Please reach out to me if you feel that this would be of value through my office number 863-467-9500.
    Thank you
