GW School of Nursing alumnus Andrews Nyantakyi, A.B.S.N. ’22, is the founder and executive director of the healthcare nonprofit Elijeko Foundation, which has promoted community health education and preventative care in Ghana since 2016.

The nonprofit is currently focusing on training bystanders to perform pre-hospital interventions on patients in crisis, including both CPR and wound care; since many Ghanaian communities are rural, a knowledgeable bystander could mean the difference between life and death.

With a vision extending beyond immediate interventions, Nyantakyi plans to establish patient safety ambassadors in Ghanaian hospitals, advocating for improved care standards and ultimately enhancing healthcare accessibility and outcomes nationwide.
