Dr. Origbenga Arogunre

I am a March 2001 graduate of Dentistry of the College of Medicine, University of Lagos, where I was an intern for a year. I also worked at the 68, Nigeria Army Reference Hospital, Yaba, Lagos; Dental & Maxillofacial Hospital, Port Harcourt; NNPC Medical Division, Eastern Zone, Port Harcourt; Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, Yenagoa; and currently Diete Koki Memorial Hospital, Yenagoa.

I’m currently undertaking the postgraduate program in Public Health at the University of Port Harcourt.

Having read about HealthTrends Wonder App online, my opinion is that it is a necessary Initiative in developing nations like Nigeria. Ranked 187 out of 191 nations with respect to healthcare provision with indices like Infant Mortality Rates, Under-5-Mortality  Rates, Maternal Mortality Rates still abysmally high,  this App is a Welcome development.

“My goal in Healthcare Trends is to create the Oral Health Component of the App as well as make it a Hospital Management Initiative” especially in the South-South geopolitical zone of Nigeria where the App would be of great value considering the hard-to-reach riverine terrain.
