Since completing her studies at Cairo University and the Royal College of Radiology, Dr Norran H Said has become one of the foremost voices on women’s medicine and has been a visionary in breast cancer prevention in Egypt. As the former Executive Director of the Breast Cancer Foundation in Egypt (BCFE), the former Director of Women’s Imaging at Cairo Radiology Center (CairoScan), she also contributed with substantial work at the Ministry of Health and has become a passionate expert in breast MRI, digital mammography, breast ultrasound and interventional procedures.

Bettering the health and lives of women has constantly been her driving ambition; in that vein she co-founded The Egyptian Society of Women’s Imaging and Health Care in 2005. In 2007, the National Breast Screening Program was introduced and she was handpicked to join the screening team at the Women’s Health Outreach Program funded and created by the Ministry of Health. She is also acting treasurer of the program’s official NGO; the National Foundation for Breast Cancer Elimination.

She was awarded the Derek Harwood Nash Fellowship by the Radiological Society of North America for training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard University. Her research continues to address challenges on both local and international levels, submitting studies on the Breast Cancer to the Radiological Society of North America, The American Society of Clinical Oncology and The European Society of Radiology.

In addition to her experience in managerial roles in Manial Specialized Hospital, Cairo University Radiology Department and Cairo Scan, Dr Norran is currently developing her management skills studying a Management Diploma at AUC.

As the CEO of LHA, she continues to be at the forefront of changing how women view medicine in Egypt by using her vast knowledge of women’s health issues and the delicate process it involves toward creating a safe haven for women to heal and grow.
