Please join me to welcome a good friend, academic, pharmacist, medical technologist, and healthcare professional B. Joseph Akimwumi. Our friendship and professional connections started at Clark University. At Clark, Joseph completed several academic courses in computer and information technology with an emphasis in healthcare delivery, control, and management before he pursued his Doctoral in Pharmacy at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (MCPHS) located in the City of Worcester, Massachusetts.
Joseph has also worked in the mental health and social services sectors and is also a Certified Medication Administration Professional (MAP). He has a passion to see healthcare delivery, administration, and management effective and efficient in developing countries with limited or no existing healthcare and pharmaceutical infrastructure in an effort to provide universal healthcare everyone irrespective of their social class and minority categorization. Joseph, as a key member of the Global & Public Health team, will work and report to Temitayo Akinbola, Director of Global & Public Health and Mairi McConachie, Global & Public Health Technical Specialist. In this role, Joseph and others will develop key strategies to advancing health and sanitation across all of our projects areas and partners in an effort to collaborative achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals centered around health and human wellbeing.
