A beautiful woman is a beautiful woman, but a beautiful woman with a brain is a lethal combination. #BlackGirlMagic. #IgboAmaka #Blessed #BlackExcellence #WomeninMedicine
The women in the Uradu family are not only beautiful but they are hardworking, intelligent, and ambitious women. Not only is Dr. Lawrence related to women in medicine but he is married to a doctor as well. His wife is a pediatric resident at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. They recently had a son and it is no doubt that their son will be great. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he became a doctor as well.
For the Christmas season, the Nigerian doctor along with his family members took the time to offer their medical services in the community for free by giving the gift of health. Believing that you should never forget your roots, Dr. Lawrence and his family traveled to their village in Nigeria, Africa to provide medical care for people in need.
#UraduDoctors Today my family took time to give back to the community. We spent time providing medical care to the people in our village. We have been blessed and it definitely felt good to touch multiple lives this Christmas season. We have plans to do very big things and by Gods grace, we will achieve them. Thank you to everyone that participated. It was an amazing and humbling experience. #TheUradus #UraduFoundation #BlackDoctors #BeInspired
