ZHANNA ALLEN B.S., RDMS.

Dept. of Humanities
IWRI Translator (Russian-English)

The field of my work is the Diagnostic Radiology.
Always felt that diagnostic imaging is a form of intricate art, a peek into the mesmerizing, unique world within us, the world of selfless bestowal of each cell, each organ in our body for the wellbeing of the entire organism. I found great joy in helping people to stay healthy, improve, and sometimes even save their lives by early detection. My wish to everyone in the world is to find a way to express oneself, contribute to the environment, to find a purpose for living.
That is why my heart belongs to IWRI. A place that works on breaking barriers between people, creating scientific method, creating a way of reaching integral living on our planet. The Department of Translators serves that exact purpose. We help people to break the barrier of misunderstanding and finding a way to connect with each other. From the inner to the outer world with contentment and balance.
