Dr. Nwosu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nwosu "Born in Nigeria, Dr. Nwosu obtained his medical degree from the University of Nigeria -- Nsukka in 1994. He then practiced pediatrics in Gambia until he moved to London, England in 1998, where he met and married his wife and partner in practice, Oyoyo Onuoha, MD. Instead of going on a honeymoon, the pair traveled to Shepparton, Australia on a working holiday, where they practiced as emergency room physicians for a year. In 2003 they moved to New York City, where Dr. Nwosu completed his internal medicine residency at Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn. Following his residency, Dr. Nwosu worked in several hospitals and clinics including St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale, Arizona; and Mountain Vista Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona. He is board certified in internal medicine. As a philanthropist, Drs. Nwosu and Onuoha established and continue to fund a primary school -- Stripes International Academy -- in his hometown village of Ihite-Ude Ofeme, Abia state, Nigeria as a way of giving back. With his younger brother, Ugo Nwosu, he also established a transport company to help alleviate the suffering of rural villagers during their commute into Umuahia City. Dr. Nwosu is also involved in his local churches both in the U.S. and in Nigeria. He and Dr. Onuoha have five wonderful children. A compassionate and highly skilled doctor, Dr. Nwosu brings a wealth of experience acquired from working in different countries to Stripes Primary Care, which he co-founded with his wife in 2011."
