Dwomoa (Jo) Adu (1946- )

Jo Adu trained in nephrology at Guy’s Hospital and was appointed consultant nephrologist at QE Hospital, Birmingham in 1981, where with Jonathan (now Sir Jonathan) Michael he established the renal service.

Following retirement from the NHS he returned to his native Ghana, and played a key role as leader and mentor in the development of nephrology there, and as a driving force for renal research in Africa.

During a recent UK Black History Month he reflected on his career as the first Black consultant nephrologist in the UK. (link)
