Omolola: I’ve been a member of the Trybe since inception in February.

aha! Trybe: Why did you join the Trybe?

Omolola: I joined the trybe essentially because I wanted to support my childhood friend’s initiative, support a woman-owned businees and also be part of a group of people who are health-conscious. Also because of the affordability of access to healthcare aha trybe offers.

aha! Trybe: How would you describe your experience with us so far?

aha! Trybe: What do you like most about the trybe?

Omolola: I like that vital information is shared. You learn new things regularly, you are in a community where you meet new people from different spheres of life. That’s interesting to me. Also there is something that makes you laugh regularly. Laughter is therapeutic, you know 😃.

aha! Trybe: What did you want to become when you were a child?

Omolola: I wanted to become a nurse. My late father wanted me to be a medical doctor. I felt since my senior sister was already studying medicine, the family will be boring. My senior sister discouraged me from nursing and I opted for pharmacy.

I am proud to be a clinical pharmacist now. A consultant with specialisations in cardiovascular, renal and endocrine pharmacotherapy. Knowing drugs are poisons and can only work when used appropriately.

I further delved into non-drug therapy, where holistic methods can also be used to trigger the body to function and heal itself using accupuncture, cupping, therapeutic massage and natural or herbal preparations.

Omolola: I’m a chief pharmacist working in an outpatient setting. I head the pharmacy department.

aha! Trybe: What do you love most about your job?

Omolola: I love that I am doimg a lot to give pharmaceutical care to patients. To make sure there are no drug therapy problems and also to catch on time, patients who are on border line for health challenges. I develop plans and measures to prevent such illnesses or diseases from coming up. Prevention is better than cure.
