I am Gbemisola Boyede, Nigerian born and trained Consultant Neurodevelopmental Paediatrician. I am the Founder/CEO of Ask The Paediatricians Foundation, a registered NGO in Nigeria that I started as a Facebook Group in July 2015 out of my passion as a Paediatrician to reduce preventable deaths of children rooted in ignorance of parents and carers.
Ask The Paediatricians Foundation is committed to reducing preventable child deaths in Nigeria in keeping with the Sustainable Development Goal 3 by providing evidence-based health education online; and offline through free community medical outreaches to indigent children in under-served communities in Nigeria with limited access to healthcare professionals and facilities.
I am a Community leader and has been awarded locally and internationally for my work such as the Radiant Health Magazine 2016 Woman of Action; Fellow, Facebook Community Leadership Programme 2018 and 2019 Fellow of Skoll World Forum.
I am very passionate about child health issues and committed to stopping preventable deaths of children globally especially in Nigeria.
I appreciate information, funding and collaboration that would support our community medical outreaches to indigent children in Nigeria.
I am a community leader and could train and support aspiring leaders on how to build, organise and run a team and virtual community online.
