Dr Julius Ngu
Dr. Ngu is a current General Surgery Resident at George Washington University in the District of Columbia. He attended medical school at the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences of the University of Yaoundé I, Cameroon, where he graduated with honors. As a General Practitioner, he received further training in HIV/AIDS management and treated patients in the Littoral and South West Regions of Cameroon and sat on a number of AIDS Control Committees. He holds a master’s degree in Epidemiology from the University of Cambridge, England and is currently a doctoral student of Public Health of the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
He is a dynamic and hardworking young man who has not let the circumstances of his birth limit his ability to dream and grow. He believes that disease prevention and health promotion should form the center piece of health policy in resource-poor countries like Cameroon; that addressing the social ramifications of HIV/AIDS through empowering children orphaned by AIDS/HIV with education and job skills training, is part of the holistic approach to curbing the spread of the pandemic.
When not seeing patients, he spends time mentoring younger physicians and students. As a goodwill Ambassador of Vincent Kewala Nyambi Foundation with working experience gleaned from both Cameroon and the First world, Dr. Ngu’s experience is a unique source of advice to the Foundation. He continues to work to expand our membership and donor base.
