With the help of other YP-CDN members, Seun Adebiyi, launched the first bone marrow registry in Nigeria!
“I want to share some exciting news with you. We launched the Bone Marrow Registry at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital four days ago…This exciting experience has convinced me of at least one thing: we are not the leaders of tomorrow. We are the leaders of today! We push the envelope, test uncharted waters, dodge red tape when necessary, and transcend national boundaries in our quest to combat non-communicable diseases in the global arena. Most importantly, we get things done. I am thrilled to be a part of the YP community, where action and initiative go hand-in-hand with strategy and teamwork. I relied heavily on the assistance of other YP members to get this project of the ground, and I look forward to giving back to this incredible community.”
