She has served on the executive body of the Medical Association of the Bahamas, and has organised and co-chaired several of its annual conferences.
Dr. Sin Quee is seen as one of the field’s active leaders in the Caribbean region. She is an instrumental part of the SickKids-Caribbean Initiative, serving as Co-Lead Physician for the Caribbean and feels it is “an important project in pooling resources and working together to improve the quality of care in cancer and blood diseases for our children in the region”. The initiative also broadened her involvement at an international level with involvement as a part of the PAHO Childhood Cancer Working Group and as the Bahamas National Coordinator to the ASH Children’s International Consortium on Acute Leukemia (C-ICAL).
She is also a strong advocate for children with Cancer and Blood Diseases and serves as the Medical advisor to the Bahamas Sickle Cell Awareness and Hemophilia Associations.
