MOTION ON 3 BLACK FEMALE DOCTORS BREAKING THE GLASS CEILING IN RADIOLOGY
The African National Congress moves without notice: That the House
- notes that radiologists, Doctors Nonceba Koranteng, Palesa Mutshutshu and Jacinta Adrigwe have recently launched an advanced medical radiation workers’ monitoring service, Dosimeter Services;
- further notes that this company monitors occupational radiation exposure to assist employers with their responsibility to ensure that doses are monitored and reported;
- acknowledges that Dr Koranteng chose to specialise in radiology because for her it has so much possibility for assisting people through non-invasive means and the diagnoses are the core of guiding surgeons and physicians in treating patients;
- further acknowledges that Dr Mutshutshu wanted to build a legacy for her daughter and to make a name for black women in medicine, in radiology, and in health ownership representivity, and Dr Adrigwe chose radiology as a speciality, because radiology is a discipline that is at the intersection of all others and this was important for her;
- understands that the business venture started due to the lack of female radiologists, especially black ones and
- congratulates all of three Doctors and wishes them much success.
