A new remarkable achievement for Lebanon was reaped by Dr. Tarek Salah Assi (who hails from the southern town of Dweir) by receiving the first place award in the European Commission on Cancer's Examination for 2018, during its annual conference this year which was held in Barcelona, Spain, between September 27 and October 1, 2019.

More than 400 oncologists from across the world usually undertake the examination, which is considered part of the recognition of tumor competence in some European countries. The doctor is also accredited by the European Cancer Committee for five years.
