Dr. Felix Amoa-Bonsu was originally born in Ghana, West Africa and migrated to the US as a liitle boy. Long lines were a normal part of seeking medical care in Africa. When Dr. Bonsu moved to the inner city of Chicago, he witnessed the same long lines at the inner city hospitals.
It was there where he drew the parallel between immediate access to medicine. He realized that even though medicine should be “a right”, it always seemed to take a back seat to finances. It was then that he realized what he wanted to be.
I have always loved to help people, from volunteering at the food kitchens at local churches as a young man to volunteering at several hospitals in high school. It has always been innate for me.
I went to University of Michigan for my undergraduate degree and afterwards again volunteered at Chicago Osteopathic hospital working with Abused children. I went to medical school at University of Illinois at Chicago. I did my residency training at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx, New York.
I worked at Howard Hospital before moving to Atlanta, GA. My current focus is providing Atlanta consumers with access to medicine without the long lines and long wait times.
