Dr Akua Ampadu MD is a board-certified Internal Medicine trained Hospitalist physician passionate about providing quality inpatient adult care. Outside of taking care of patients in the hospital ward, she connects with the general public through writing and speaking engagements. Through these avenues, she delivers tools that can be used to help people live fruitful lives focused on general health & wellness, self-care, and self-advocacy.

 Using my personal experience with work and life-related burnout I provide reformative training for those going through their own resilience journey.

As a daughter of the Diaspora with Ghanaian roots, I also work on projects focused on improving the lives of African, Afro-Caribbean,  African-American, and all Diasporan women.
