Another member of the Okonjo family has written the country’s name in gold and done herself and family proud
Okonjo-Iweala’s sister, Dr Njideka Udochi, has been recognized as the family doctor of the current year in the United States
Udochi, a graduate of medicine from the University of Nigeria, with over 33 years of experience in the medical line becomes the first black woman to win the reputable award.
The US-based family physician, according to Nigeria Abroad, is the founder of the Millennial Family Care and was recognized as the top doctor by Baltimore Magazine in 2019.
The Maryland Academy of Family Physicians usually recognizes members that do exceedingly well as far as the tenets and ethos that guide family physicians are concerned.
