I am a drug information pharmacist, an author of a consumer-friendly book on how to use medicines safely,and a co-editor of a scientific journal (National Drug Information Journal), which is based in Ghana. I used cartoons and story-telling techniques to make my book, Medicines: Using Them Safely (now in its second edition) very engaging. In it, medicines speak!
From 2006 through 2008,I educated consumers on how to use medicines safely via a television network in Ghana (TV3). Prior to that, I had written scripts for a television drama serial, LET'S TALK ABOUT DRUGS (LTADs), which was aired on Ghana Television in 2005. Since 2001, I have also been involved in face-to-face engagements with the general public in schools, churches, and mosques on health issues. I have educated the public on science and health issues through radio and newspaper (I was a regular contributor of a column called "Hello Doctor" of the weekly newspaper, The Spectator, of Ghana).
I am the director of the Centre for Science and Health Communication, an NGO based in Ghana (and formed in 2008) with a mission of promoting public understanding of science and health issues.
Moreover, I am pursuing two master's degrees: a master of science degree in science and technology journalism at Texas A&M University and a master of development communication
at the University of the Philippines Open University.
I am a graduate assistant of AuthorAID, a project that helps researchers from developing countries to publish their work. Prior to joining AuthorAID, I was a staff writer for Science Editor, a magazine of the Council of Science Editors.
I have a passion for science and scientific communication, and have also been writing news and feature stories for an online media in Ghana (myjoyonline.com)
