I am Dr. Despina Katsochi, MD PhD, a senior clinical Radiation Oncologist in the Radiation Oncology Department at Hygeia Hospital in Athens. I received my medical degree in both Radiology and Radiation Oncology at the medical faculty of the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) in Aachen, Germany, where I stayed on as Associate Professor and Senior Deputy Director. My maxim is to always strive to bring sunshine to my my patients’s day with encouraging words, a smile and the highest quality treatment. I am also founder of AKOS, a non-profit organization campaigning for prevention, combating fear and fighting stigma related to cancer. Photography helps me find my balance and keep smiling.
