University of Ibadan

Country: Nigeria

Institution: University of Ibadan

Area of Research:


Femi is a lecturer in the Department of Community Medicine, College of Medicine, the University of Ibadan, and a consultant community physician to its allied teaching hospital, the University College Hospital, Ibadan. His research interests include community control of non-communicable diseases, patient safety, tobacco control, and clinical epidemiology. He is involved in research and teaching at various levels and coordinates training at the University’s Ibarapa Programme. Femi is a humanist who is passionate about human joy, self-actualization, and a firm believer in the possibility of egalitarian societies. He is a movie buff, loves historical and science fiction, and cannot imagine the possibility of GRR Martin not finishing writing ASOIF. His personality philosophy is summed by two quotes “things are never as bad or as good as they seem” (he can’t remember who said this and thinks it’s original), and “to love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance” – Oscar Wilde.
