Dr. Baah is from Ghana where he practiced medicine before migrating to the United States. He says, “My passion to go into medicine stems from the experiences I had growing up in a small town of about a thousand people with limited access to healthcare. I developed the passion to go into research because I believe it is the driving force to the future of medicine.” He will graduate from UNC-Charlotte with a Master’s in Epidemiology in the spring of 2020. His areas of interest include genetic epidemiology, nutrigenomics, and nutrigenetics. He currently works with Dr. Martin Kohlmeier to strengthen training programs in precision nutrition, particularly for physicians.
