" I've always believed in the power of diversity of ideas that teamwork provides in solving a problem. Millennium Fellowship provides me with this platform and I am therefore happy to be a fellow. I am without doubt that all the inputs I will get through this fellowship will be invaluable in improving the healthcare system of my immediate society. Improved healthcare I believe, is a step in the right direction towards a better society! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: 500 lives
500 lives is about raising awareness on voluntary blood donation through various social media platforms. It not only aims to raise awareness but also invariably increase the number of voluntary blood donations through organized blood drives. In years past, the project has led to the donation of hundreds of pints of blood to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital. This year, we hope to facilitate the donation of about 500-1000 pints of blood.
The success of the project will be measured by liaising with the recipient blood bank to determine the number of increase in voluntary blood donations recorded over the period of the project.
