Molecular Insights: Nigeria Evolves Mind Care
135 Dr. David Ajibade is an interesting guest reporting on biomedical testing and associated medical implications as Nigeria evolves the practice of biomedical measurements for mental health. He is the Executive Director and founder of Brain and Body Solutions, Ltd., an integrated health center there, and Brain and Body Foundation, a Nigerian organization focused on educating the general public on brain health related matters. He focuses on providing safe, effective breakthrough technologies to alleviate the suffering of children and adults troubled with brain related medical conditions. He has a special interest in children born with multiple medical challenges in Nigeria.
For the record, I met David at a Walsh Institue training program near Chicago in 2015 and found his enthusiasm and deep interest in molecular physiology inspirational as he regularly considered the process of translating Walsh work back to the Nigerian medical community.
Dr. Ajibade received his medical degree from the University of Ibadan and worked in the Radiotherapy and Oncology (cancer) Department at the National Hospital in his hometown Abuja before leaving for the United States to pursue a complete study of mental health issues, medicine and the process of evolving the standard of care. He returned from additional training in the US to serve as a Consultant to the Nigerian Army on mental health related issues, including PTSD, depression, and substance abuse.
He has devoted the last twenty years of his life to studying how the human mind and body work together, with a focus on understanding how to optimize their interactive dynamics to improve mental health and informed recovery. He has also had a keen interest in identifying and studying some of the most researched and most critically acclaimed discoveries in medical science, especially in the fields of brain function and cancer.
