University Academic Lecturer/Research Fellow, Nigeria, Africa
I am an academic lecturer with the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State, South-South Nigeria, which is a state owned government varsity. I am also an academic fellow of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission UK. I had the privileged opportunity of working closely with Prof Laura Piddock at the University of Birmingham, where I really understood the full impact of antibiotic resistance from a global point of view.
The challenges in my home country notwithstanding, I have commenced personal efforts in creating awareness on AMR by engaging in my undergraduate medical students as part of our lectures. I also use the opportunity of an authorized forum to speak for a least 10mins on the AMR challenge.
I am equally using my contacts and experience with donor agencies in my state to explore mutual collaboration in terms of public enlightenment campaigns on AMR.
