About Dr. Ogban Ezukwa Omoronyia

Dr Ogban Omoronyia is a Community Health Physician and Clinical Epidemiologist, with keen interest in delivery of cost-effective, but evidence-based health solutions, to high burden of non-communicable diseases in developing countries. He is a Lecturer 1 with the Department of Community Medicine, University of Calabar, employed in 2016. He is also a Senior Consultant Community Physician with the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, Calabar, Nigeria, employed in 2017. His initial passion was to appreciate through research, the interrelationship between diverse communicable and non-communicable diseases in resource-poor settings. His current focus is on better understanding of the trend and dynamics of cardiometabolic diseases, as well as effects of interventions among clinically-diagnosed, and apparently well, but at-risk populations, with much focus on hypertension and diabetes mellitus. It is hoped that in the near future, developing countries will contribute much less to global burden of cardiometabolic diseases, through access to affordable and effective prevention, treatment and care services by all, in tune with recommended best practices. A fellow of the West African College of Physicians (Community Health), Dr Omoronyia holds MBBS degree from the University of Ibadan (2005) and MPH degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Maryland, USA (2008). Since joining the University, he has been teaching, training and mentoring medical students in the University. He is also involved in research within and outside the University. Dr Omoronyia has attended many local and international conferences where he made presentations and other useful contributions. He has successfully published over thirty articles spread across several per reviewed journal articles. Furthermore, he has served the University in other capacities including Secretary of the CoVID-19 prevention Committee of the College of Medical Sciences (2021 to date). He is a member of several professional bodies including Nigeria Medical Association and Association of Public Health Physician of Nigeria. He is happily married with children.
