On Thursday we attended a lecture and award presentation for Dr. Ernest Madu, a Nigerian clinician and leader in global health.
Hosted by the University of Pennsylvania’s newly launched Center for Global Health (DRASA is collaborating with the Center for our infectious diseases simulation training), the event was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
Dr. Madu, Founder and CEO of the Heart Institute of the Caribbean, is an internationally recognized cardiologist and an accomplished clinical investigator. He lectures extensively around the world on innovative healthcare solutions and the strategic application of healthcare technology. Dr. Madu is a leading expert in the development of healthcare infrastructure and leveraging technology to bridge the access gap in quality healthcare delivery and he has used his expertise to lead innovative and transformational healthcare projects in Africa and the Caribbean.
Dr. Madu, whose work has impacted so many lives, is much deserving of this honourable award. We congratulate him and we look forward to seeing him when he comes to Abuja soon to speak at the 2016 Future of Health Conference!
