About

Biography

I am a BMT hospitalist — a doctor who takes care of children admitted to the Bone Marrow Transplant service for a hospital stay. In my role, I have found that a good listening ear and empathy go a long way in building trust with families.

I was drawn to this job because I was interested in learning more about bone marrow transplantation as a treatment option for children with sickle cell disease, given the high rate of this disease in my home country, Nigeria. I enjoy being able to form long-term relationships with patients and their families.

In my free time, I host a podcast called 'The Storytime Clinic' that uses children's books to educate people about health conditions. I also enjoy running half-marathons and creating acapella music.
