I’m so SO excited to finally share this conversation I had with Tolu a few weeks ago. She is an incredible doctor, an accomplished academic, and so in love with Jesus it’s contagious. We talked about all sorts of things, from her journey into medicine, her interest and research into Sickle Cell Disease. Tolu shares how her faith impacts her work, and shares a story that gave me serious goosebumps.
Whether you work in medicine or not, Tolu’s witness is inspiring for anyone seeking to offer their work to God. I know I’ll come back to this conversation again and again to gain more wisdom! Enjoy!
About Dr. Tolulope Rosanwo
Tolu is a current resident in Pediatrics in Boston, MA. Her keen interest in sickle cell disease is greatly owed to having many loved ones living with SCD. She has been a patient-advocate developing a mentoring program for chronically transfused children with SCD and medical students at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine (where she studied) and has written an opinion piece on the need for anti-racism in the care of patients with SCD.
Tolu is also a scientist and studies the normal and disordered development of red blood cells and investigates how a patients own cells can be used for cures of their own blood diseases using gene therapy. She has received numerous awards for her research and has presented her work on three continents, published her findings and wrote a textbook chapter on the critical care of patients with SCD.
Medicine has been her calling and she looks to Jesus Christ as the Great Physician as her number one example of how to practice medicine.
