Segun was born in the beautiful city of Abuja, Nigeria, where he enjoyed the care and wisdom of his now-late grandparents. He graduated with Honors in Medicine from the University of Debrecen, Hungary, where he also obtained a master’s in public health. With over ten years of experience in general medical practice in Nigeria, he has become an advocate for senior health. During his time at his former place of work, Segun supported an initiative to provide healthcare to retired staff. He was at the forefront of rendering healthcare to this population as a generalist, and he considers himself a true friend of the older generations. In addition to his passion for healthcare, Segun loves the beautiful things in life, such as his wife and two adorable children. He also enjoys travelling, cooking, running, and dancing. Segun now lives in the lively city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, which he is most thankful for. While he is still working on getting licensed in Canada, he came across WAY, a lifeline to connecting with Seniors whom he passionately cares about. As a generalist at heart, he also volunteers at IWK, which allows him to connect with the care of women and children; Nova Scotia Brotherhood, which helps him reach the adult population, especially those of African ancestry; and ISANS, where he helps immigrant doctors prepare for their licensing exams. He now has the privilege of working as a casual staff at Dalhousie University.
Segun’s Way wish is to skydive in Asia or Australia, continents he is yet to visit, but he will not pass over the opportunity if it presents itself in Nova Scotia.
