The second son of the Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has been appointed as the first African American chairman of the Young Neurosurgeons Committee of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
Dr. Edjah Kweku Nduom’s appointment brings a ray of joy into the Nduom household. His father had described April as a difficult month for him as a businessman and a family man as some of his companies were hit by accidents.
Fire ravaged a portion of Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom’s property located on the premises of the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel at North Ridge in Accra last Saturday.
In a Facebook post, Dr Edjah Nduom advocated for providing support to young neurosurgeons.
“Let’s energize the next generation of Neurosurgical leaders,” he said in the post.
He posted that “Last night, I led my first meeting as Chair of the Young Neurosurgeons Committee of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. In doing so, I have become the first African American Chair in the 26-year history of the committee. I have big shoes to fill in following my friend and colleague, Dr Krystal Tomei, in this role, but I am excited by the challenge. Let’s energize the next generation of Neurosurgical leaders! #AANS2017 AANS Neurosurgeon“.
