I am Dr. Nweze Otito Adaeze, a Nigerian medical doctor currently enrolled in the MSc Control of Infectious Diseases at LSHTM.

Research interests/career goals
My dream is to work with World Health Organization (WHO) with special interest in communicable diseases. In order to contribute positively to curb the spread, effects and management of communicable diseases on infected individuals in underdeveloped countries like Nigeria. I am keen on improving attitude to health through clinical research, health education and health promotion. I also would like to go into academia at some point to share some of my knowledge and experience with younger people.
