Brief About Chinwe Onyia

While trying to decide on a subspecialty in medicine, I chose the dynamic and ever evolving field of Gastroenterology because of the numerous opportunities. Most importantly, I saw a chance to find a solution to a silent scourge which is on a steady rise in Nigeria. Liver cancer is currently one of the top 5 cancers in Nigeria. Sadly, the mortality is worst among those in the young and middle age, because of chronic hepatitis especially chronic hepatitis B which is the major culprit in Subsaharan, Africa. “ALL  You NEED to know about Hepatitis” is a social media Facebook platform which I started on health Education and counselling on Hepatitis and  Liver cancer . it has gained wide coverage as close to 2000 Nigerians have subscribed for counselling.
