Fulfilling a Lifelong Promise
Growing up in Ghana in West Africa, Gloria Koomson saw suffering and illness in her family and friends, but no doctors. The lack of medical care struck home with a vengeance when a parasitic disease of the eye left her mother completely blind. She decided then that she would meet this critical shortage in her country and become a doctor. She earned her medical degree from Saba in 2008 and received her first choice of residency in Internal Medicine at Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio.
