Dr. Asa Ahimbisibwe is a Cambridge Memorial Hospital Obstetrician. He could have easily not become a doctor. Growing up in Uganda, Africa, the young professional always had the world pushing against him, but his desire to obtain an education persisted until he found success.
Even though his dream of becoming a medical professional came true, his female family members have not been as fortunate due to the lack of support for women’s health and education in developing countries.
Dr. Ahimbisibwe recently published 'Hopeful', a book about the challenges of the many children growing up in developing countries who yearn to have an education. Hopeful is an account of Dr. Ahimbisibwe and his cousin who, born in disadvantaged villages in Uganda, embark on the uphill task of changing their lives, but end up in completely different places.
Dr. Ahimbisibwe has set a goal of raising $10,000 for CMHF through his book proceeds.
LUNCH BUNCH: After the meeting, all members are invited to have lunch (at their own cost) at a local restaurant. A great way to get to know your fellow members.
