By Tafadzwa Hove

A Ghanaian woman identified as Dr Denise.A Asafo-Adjei has made Ghana and Africa as well proud as she became the first black woman to complete a residency in neurology at Columbia University.

The woman announced this relatively rare and difficult accomplishment on Instagram.

She wrote, “I am super proud to be the first black woman to complete Residency in Urology at Columbia University.”

No black woman has ever completed residency at Columbia University until now.

The smart Ghanaian doctor gave thanks to God, parents, siblings, family, friends, mentors, sponsors and her boyfriend .

“It truly takes a village to raise a doctor, “, she further said.

She also shared that she was excited to start her first day of fellowship the next coming day at UCLA in Andrology (Sexual Dysfunction and Male Infertility)
