Didi Odinkemelu, M.D.


Didi Odinkemelu says that her involvement with the Vanderbilt Institute of Global Health (VIGH) has been nothing short of exciting. She spent a summer in Liberia, working with Liberian nurse anesthetists to better understand the challenges in training anesthesiology providers in the country. She reports that her mentors at VIGH continue to go above and beyond to support her interests. Didi says it has been truly inspiring to learn from and alongside people who walk the walk of true global health partnership, and are equally committed to ensuring better health for humans around the world. She is currently applying into anesthesiology residency, and global health will be a central focus of her future work.
