About the Millennium Fellow

Kwadwo Antwi Appiagyei is an innovative, eminent, and explorative Optometry student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is Ghana. Kwadwo Antwi has the desire to help the financially challenged have access to quality eye care. This desire originated from an encounter he had with a student who lost her dreams to the high cost of eye care. Ever since, Kwadwo has been involved in projects to make eye care free and accessible to countless people. Kwadwo Antwi is currently involved in a project to reduce the cost of research in eye care. He believes this will motivate many to get involved in eye-related research and will give the less endowed a chance at finding solutions to their problems. Kwadwo Antwi is of the opinion that free, quality, and accessible health care is not impractical, but a challenge to be taken on by the determined and passionate.
