Dr Maisara Alrayyes

(MSc Women & Children’s Health, 2020)

It is with great sadness that we have learned that our alumnus, Dr Maisara Alrayyes and members of his family, were killed in Gaza. We send our deepest condolences to his surviving family and to all his friends within the King’s community and beyond.

Dr Alrayyes joined King’s in 2019 when he was awarded a highly prestigious Chevening Scholarship, and undertook an MSc in Women and Children’s Health, which he completed the following year. During his time at King’s, his work was published in a number of high-profile journals, including the Prehospital and Disaster Medicine, and he was well respected and known among his colleagues for his dedication to improving healthcare for women and children in low-income and war-affected regions.
