Dr. Walker became a WHOCC Scholar in 2011. She conducted a 3 day workshop and educational activities for nurses and medical staff on cancer care at the Cancer Diseases Hospital in Zambia, and has provided consultation and education on cancer care with faculty in Malawi. She also facilitated meetings and mentoring activities for a nurse from Zambia involving HIV initiatives in adolescents and has been an ongoing resource and support system for a colleague in Zambia in regards to oncology initiatives.
Over the next several years Dr. Walker would like to continue to build on these relationships that have begun in Zambia, helping them build a strong oncology program within their country. Her background in oncology nursing and now education, gives her the skills to help nurses globally strengthen their oncology leadership and nursing education.
