Okonjo-Iweala’s sister makes history in US as she wins Family Doctor of the year Award

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala's sister, Dr. Njideka Udochi, has emerged as the family doctor of the year 2021 in Maryland, USA, a few days after Ngozi assumed office as the first female head and first African to lead the World Trade Organization.

Udochi, a graduate of medicine from the University of Nigeria, with over 33 years of experience in the medical line becomes the first black woman to win the reputable award.

The US-based family physician, according to Nigeria Abroad, is the founder of the Millennial Family Care and was recognized as the top doctor by Baltimore Magazine in 2019. Her sister, Madam Ngozi was so proud of her and immediately sent her a ‘shoutout’ on Twitter to acknowledge her feat.

“Congratulations Dr. Njideka Udochi, Maryland’s Family Physician Of The Year. Thank you for your care of COVID-19 patients and for saving so many lives. Proud of you my sister,” she tweeted.
