Dr Edem Agamah is an inspirational US-based Ghanaian medical doctor, who has done something exemplary and worthy of emulation.
This practising Hematologist and Oncologist, has managed, through the support of many friends, family, church supporters and volunteer medical specialists from Springfield, Illinois, to build a 90-bed hospital for the people of Wheta-Adzadokpo and the surrounding communities in the South-eastern corner of Ghana – specifically in the Volta Region.
The International Health and Development Network (IHDN) Mission Hospital (www.ihdn.org) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of it’s founding. On Saturday, 28th July, I was blessed, honoured, and simply inspired to join Dr Agamah and several others at the hospital. Great to have as keynote speaker the Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Letsa, another medical doctor and the supportive and committed Prof Grace Parkins of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital as the Chairperson.
Dr Agamah, who attended Ketasco, Presec, and the University of Ghana Medical School, is also an Associate Professor of Medicine At the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. Please, listen to him and be inspired.
THERE IS HOPE. WE HAVE HOPE. HAVE HOPE.
