Director of "St. Marina" University Hospital Prof.
Dr. Zhaneta Georgieva
was awarded with an
individual Varna Prize in
the field of Science and Higher Education for her outstanding contribution
and dedication to the establishment of
an Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre and
the opening of a Centre for Translational Medicine and
Cellular Therapy at Varna University Hospital.
this award is an evaluation of what I've done so far for the citizens of Varna.
For me, this recognition is awarded to a greater extent to the teams of Medical
University - Varna and "St. Marina" University Hospital rather than to
me. The merit for it belongs to them to a great
extent", said Prof. Ivanov.
Prof. Ivanov dedicated his award to the
students who have chosen Medicine for their destiny and professional career, as
he believes that they are the ones who need encouragement and appreciation.
"In our society, unfortunately, we have witnessed a negative attitude
towards doctors. We are constantly bombarded with "black information"
about the failures in medical profession. These people should receive the
recognition they deserve from the public and the media in order to be able to
fully dedicate themselves to their profession. I believe that in this way
doctors will get an impetus to develop their potential in this field", said
