Rajiv Samant, MD, FRCPC, DABR, Joins The Professional Advisory
for World Laughter Tour
Dr. Samant is a radiation oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital, and an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa. He has been caring for cancer patients for over 25 years, and has gained much wisdom from his patients and colleagues during that time.
As a teacher, educator and researcher interested in improving how we deal and communicate with patients and their families, he believes patients need to be treated on an individual basis with dignity, respect and kindness as well as with a good dose of humor where circumstances allow for levity to enter a too often serious world.
