Drs. Olugbenga and Omotola Dawodu (née Olusanya) Attain Platinum Status on the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan Student Hostel Building Project Donor List

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Dr. Olugbenga Dawodu, MD, MBA and Dr. Omotola Dawodu (née Olusanya), MD, who are very distinguished alumni of the University of Ibadan College of Medicine, have together attained the platinum donor status in their outstanding contributions towards the Ibadan College of Medicine Alumni Association (ICOMAA) administered Students Hostel Building Project at their alma mater. Their journey from Nigeria to becoming respected health professionals in the United States serves as an inspiration to everyone in the medical community.

Both Dr. Olugbenga Dawodu and Dr. Omotola Dawodu started their medical education at the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan. Dr. Olugbenga Dawodu graduated in 1986 and Dr. Omotola Dawodu graduated in 1988. Following their education, they built on the foundation they received at the College of Medicine and pursued successful careers in Internal/Occupational Medicine and Anesthesiology, respectively, in New York City.

Over the years, both of them have been motivated to give back in gratitude for the education and support from their university, families, and communities. It has also been a reflection of their faith. "Giving to us is a spiritual commitment; after all, God gave us everything we have," they shared. Their collective commitment to public goodwill has led to the establishment of several charitable organisations, including Miracle Through You in the USA and Miracle from Willing Heart initiatives in Nigeria. These organisations focus on providing scholarships to indigent students and funding various community projects. Truly, the Dawodus are dedicated to improving the lives of others and changing destinies.

That is why their donation to the Students Hostel Building Project is a continuation of their philanthropic efforts. "Donating to the hostel project was a very great opportunity to give back to the medical school that has helped us achieve success in our careers," they remarked. This contribution not only addresses the pressing need for improved student accommodation but also reflects their hope that many more young doctors will graduate from the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, and go on to become leaders in their communities and beyond.

Their generous donation towards the building project has conferred them with platinum donor status.

The entire College community celebrates this financial contribution to the betterment of student life and the future of medical education at the College. We are grateful to Drs. Olugbenga and Omotola Dawodu for this noble gesture and for sharing their journey from the University of Ibadan to their professional success in the United States, and their ongoing commitment to philanthropy.

Their legacy of giving back is truly an inspiring source of hope for us all, but it will also ensure that the next generation of doctors from the University of Ibadan will have the resources and support needed to thrive and make meaningful contributions to society.
