“The president praises the University of Ibadan and Cambridge University trained medical doctor for her illustrious work in promoting access to healthcare for the world’s population in line with SDG 3 that seeks to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being of all ages.

“Dr. Adewara is Chief Executive Officer of Africa’s first fully integrated telehealth startup leveraging technology in harnessing diaspora and local doctors through a secure electronic medical record and video software,” the statement added.
