Nadia Demko - Med student

Nadia Demko is a joint M.D.,C.M. and M.Sc. student at McGill University, with research interests ranging from knowledge translation to global surgery. Nadia’s interests in global surgery led her to spearhead a fundraiser in April 2015 for a Canadian reconstructive surgical mission to Ukraine where she met Dr. Deckelbaum, a guest speaker at the event. She soon joined the CGS to help work on building trauma capacity in Ukraine.

This past summer, she travelled to Ukraine with the CGS team to assist with the administration of a trauma training course at the Odessa National Medical University. Nadia hopes to help build partnerships among various trauma stakeholders in Ukraine with the goal of developing local capacity.
