I am a graduate student of International and Development Economics (IDEC) at University of San Francisco, California. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Economics at the University of Science and Technology, Enugu state, Nigeria.
I have extensive experience working as a public health agent. I am especially interested in working in projects that can have positive impacts on the lives of mothers, especially in rural areas where there health needs and lack of awareness are impeding development. Improving the conditions of women has the potential to improve the health of the entire household.
Through my previous work I was exposed to different states in the volatile Northern part of Nigeria. This was with National Stop the Transmission of Polio (NSTOP). NSTOP is a Non-government organization that is being sponsored by Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with Nigerian National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA). It supports mainly routine immunization and maternal health care services in the under-served and hard to reach communities.
