Dr Seyl Oyesola, cardiologist and missionary
Seyl Oyesola, M.D., was born in Nigeria but spent much of his childhood growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. In 2005, Dr. Oyesola collaborated with Alexander Bushell, to develop high quality – but compact – hospital equipment. He used their invention during his many mission trips to perform heart surgery in Nigeria. But without adequate infrastructure support, he and his medical team encountered many challenges in his efforts to care for his patients – challenges he overcame with ingenuity and perseverance. Here in the edited version of his TED Talk, are the messages we found most interesting, and supportive of our project. Dr. Oyesola is not part of our organization but we applaud what he and others are doing collaterally to help the poor of Nigeria.
