Adaora Okoli      

Internal Medicine Resident, Tulane University

Adaora Okoli became the face of Nigeria’s response to the 2014 West African Ebola epidemic when she was infected with the deadly virus after treating one of the first patients in the country to come down with the disease. Her experience as one of a handful of people to survive Ebola helped to transform Adaora into passionate global health advocate, and she is now completing her internal medicine residency at Tulane University and later plans to do a fellowship focused on infectious disease, particularly viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs).
