Dr. Oluwatomilayo Daodu to Make History as the First Black Woman Pediatric Surgeon in Canada

Meet the Black woman who will soon become the first Black woman to practice pediatric surgery in Canada! According to Face2Face Africa, Dr. Oluwatomilayo (Tito) Daodu is on a mission to make surgical care accessible to all. Despite a rough childhood, Dr. Daodu is an award-winning researcher volunteer and wants to “break down barriers to patients in need of surgical care.” “One of the things that excite me about the future is that I have a story that not many people have,” said Dr. Daodu. “I am probably uniquely situated from what I’ve gone through in life to be able to speak not just from an academic point of view, but from real life.” So proud to get to practice #pedsurg with such an incredible and supportive team at Alberta Children’s Hospital! Thanks for the shout out @APSASurgeons ! Let’s all take strides to ensure equitable access to careers in medicine and surgery! #MedTwitter #ILookLikeASurgeon — Tito Daodu MD (@TitoDaodu) February 10, 2021 According...
