The Ohio State University Corporate Engagement Office

Sheila Okere

LASER Hub Coordinator

I am currently a medical student at the Ohio State University College of Medicine. As a first-generation Nigerian-American, I had an early exposure to healthcare disparities and the lack of diversity among providers in the field of medicine. I hope to play my part in changing the narrative of what “professional” looks like as well as reduce the gaps in healthcare among various patient populations. I joined LASER as one of the Charles Hub coordinators because I am a passionate about creating a world where everyone has access to limitless opportunities despite race, gender, and socioeconomic status.
