Nigerian born Dr. Adaeze Ifezulike bestowed an MBE in Scotland

Family Physician/GP, Lifestyle Medicine Physician, award-winning author, and health advocate, Dr. Adaeze Ifezulike has been awarded an MBE in Scotland.

However, honored with the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for her services to health inequalities in black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) communities in Scotland.

She also encouraged the uptake of the Covid-19 vaccination among minority ethnic communities by setting up mobile vaccination centers in faith centers.

“It’s great to recognize for the work one has done, it’s an encouragement to do more,” she said.

“It’s a great honor to receive this.”

A career full of achievements 

Dr Adaeze Ifezulike has a number of career-defining moments, including nominated by the Family Planning Association UK for the impact of her work on women’s health and contraception within the black community. 

However, she has brought together the NHS and local churches to offer health screening programmes which also allowed access to often hard-to-reach groups, while her work to fight obesity resulted in 250 families engaging to manage their weight under her guidance. 

Although her work is also keeping her very busy, Dr Ifezulike said she will probably organize a “small celebration” in the new year to recognize her latest achievement.
