Senior Coordinator for Sickle Cell Disease.
Oluyemi ‘Yemi’ Moses was born in Durham, NC, USA to parents who immigrated from Nigeria. She was the middle child in a family with seven children; four of those seven children were born with Sickle Cell Disease, and Yemi was one of them. Throughout her life she has stood on the belief that Sickle Cell Disease would not diminish her life, and her life experiences attest to that.
She graduated from North Carolina Central University in 1998 with a B.S. degree in Human Sciences and moved to Brooklyn, NY, where she taught Special Education students. In 2006, Yemi moved to Nigeria where she worked for an Non Governmental Organization (NGO) and taught at an international school. Upon returning to the US she pursued her interest in clinical research. Currently, she is a Senior Clinical Research Associate and has had the privilege to participate in trial studies where the study drug has not only been beneficial to the patient population, but was also approved by the FDA.
Yemi continually explores her love of traveling and has had the opportunity to travel around the world. She has many more places that she would love to see and looks forward to a long and healthy life.
Yemi is the Senior Coordinator for Sickle Cell Disease, Member of the Board of Directors. She can be reached at email@example.com
