Relationship between Nigeria & Complexity | Joshua Adeoye | TEDxPortHarcourt 2016

Nigeria is made up of diverse people, tribes, religions and culture and most of the conflicts stem from the obvious differences that lie therein. Are these differences purely the source of our problems or is there something more? Doctor and public health specialist, Joshua Adeoye, delves into the intricate interactive complex parts that lie beyond the obvious. Born in Kano State, Nigeria, Dr. Adeoye Joshua Biodun is a Dentist and a Public Health Specialist whose drive is to solve complex problems that matter. He considers himself a citizen of the world, and is a proud pan-Nigerian having visited every Nigerian State. His undergraduate Dental education was at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, where he found expression in all kinds of extracurricular activities and enjoyed multiple scholarships and awards for outstanding academic excellence.Currently, Joshua is involved in cutting-edge research and implementation projects at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital and the Bayero University, Kano. His research includes teasing out the entanglements between the effects of cost and proximity in the utilization of healthcare; answering questions relating to Nigeria’s oral health policy; and finding effective ways of educating students to foster life-long learning.
