Countdown To ANPA @25

As a very enthusiastic medical student, I was in search of an organization where I could one day use my role as a physician to make a greater impact. This is how I came to the discovery of the DNPT organization. I made my first connection with DNPT in 2017 when I attended a DNPT […]

Countdown To ANPA @25

In 2007, I met Dr. Yele Aluko who was the president of ANPA at the time and immediately I got it. I understood the vision and the mission. I did not need convincing on the importance of this organization. Together, on a balmy Saturday in Charlotte, we discussed macro issues around membership, recruitment/retention and the […]

ANPA at 25 from the eyes of a Nigerian Millennial Physician Above all the things that drew me to this organization was a sense of belonging and acceptance. You see, it’s a privilege to be surrounded by trailblazing Nigerian physicians every corner you turn. However, in the same lens, it can be a bit overwhelming […]

Countdown To ANPA @ 25

I recall the invitation to the ANPA inaugural meeting in the summer of 1995 at Anaheim California. Flying from the East to the West coast to attend the meeting is a reflection on the thirst there was for finding a platform for us to give back to improve the deteriorating healthcare system we have left […]

Countdown To ANPA @ 25

As I look back at those formative years of ANPA, there were lots of challenges. At that time, systems and processes were in the making. We held frequent evening executive telephone conference calls that went on for hours. I am one of the founding members of ANPA and was appointed as a treasurer at the […]

Countdown To ANPA @ 25

My first meeting at ANPA southern California chapter, was in 2001 and was very refreshing. I met a diverse group of Nigerian physicians who genuinely liked and enjoy each other’s company and had common love for the home country and a passion for improving the health system in Nigeria and the local, at-risk, communities in […]
