Youth leaders inspire a compassionate future at Healthcare Leadership School

Insider Louisville LogoHorrified by needless deaths of patients in the Emergency Room, medical student Eddy Uwoghiren began to question his motives in becoming a doctor.

“In Nigeria,” he said, “talented young students took up medicine because of parental expectation and wanting to be rich.”

But for Eddy, asking why Nigeria doesn’t have an ambulance system became a more important question.

Following his experience at North America’s first Healthcare Leadership School (HLS), which was held June 10-18 in a rural setting an hour from Louisville, he’s committed his life to building trauma services in Nigeria, by becoming a trauma surgeon and also by advocating for improved services.

“I will be a great journalist as well as a surgeon,” he proclaimed, according to a Passport-sponsored article in Insider Louisville.
