Making a Difference: Dr. Adewale Adeniran and Dr. Emmanuel Nwelue

SAN ANTONIO – Orthopedic surgeon Adewale Adeniran says Black History Month is not only celebrating the past. Because Black history is happening right now. Making a Difference: Dr. Adewale Adeniran and Dr. Emmanuel Nwelue “I was and very many black surgeons are the first people to graduate from their training program,” says Dr. Adeniran. “I graduated in 2014 from my residency training program.” The disparity is evident, numbers from the Association of American Medical colleges show only five percent of active physicians in America are Black. Dr. Adeniran says that needs to change. His colleague Dr. Emmanuel Nwelue agrees. “In general Black people have been kind of wary of going to see doctors, whether it’s surgeons or primary care professionals,” says Dr. Nwelue. “I think when they see someone that looks similar to them sitting across from them in the room, it just makes them more comfortable.” For these two, the work is about improving people’s lives. They could have chosen any division in the medical field, but they chose orthopedics. It’s one way they’re making a difference.
