We've been seeing quite a bit of Dr. Muna Al Maslamani lately in press conferences to discuss the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Qatar, so we decided to find out more about this charming medical expert of infectious diseases like the coronavirus (COVID-19), so we can tell you exactly who is she and why we're including her in our 'Who's Who in Qatar' for this week.

Over the course of the past five years, Dr. Muna has received three major grants from QNRF’s NPRP cycle totaling $2,308,120.
She has also received several leadership and service awards for her numerous achievements in medicine, and this bears evidence of her passion and commitment towards work and patients.
She is a role model for many and is committed to improving the quality of patient care; she takes necessary steps to motivate others to do the same.
