In 2009, Seun Adebiyi was diagnosed with two rare and aggressive blood
cancers leukemia and lymphoma. His survival hinged on a stem cell
transplant, but he was unable to find a matching donor due to the scarcity of African donors. Seun began recruiting bone marrow donors even as he underwent intensive chemotherapy and continued training for the Olympics.

He was to serve as Nigeria's first-ever Winter Olympics athlete (sport:
skeleton). Seun's own life was saved when he received stem cells from the umbilical cord of a healthy newborn Nigerian baby.

Shortly thereafter, worked with Nigerian leaders, civil society members and colleagues at the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network (YP-CDN), hosted by the GHD Project, to help catalyze the launch of the first Bone Marrow Registry in Nigeria. This is only Africa's second such registry.

He is a graduate of the Yale Law School, practicing attorney of the New
York Bar and Nigerian Winter Olympic contender.

In this session, we will have a rare chance to have a one-on-one with Seun, to explore his human experience with cancer, his resilience, his vision and his message of inspiration. We will examine the Nigerian registry and surface any lessons learned for practitioners and patients alike.

I hope you'll join us for this live video chat next Wednesday! We'll also
be sharing updates on Twitter during the session, using the hashtag #yplive

Introduction
The Global Health Delivery Project at Harvard University (GHD) was launched in 2007 under the guidance of Dr. Jim Y. Kim, Dr. Paul Farmer, and Professor Michael Porter. 

An interdisciplinary collaboration between Harvard Business School, Harvard Medical School, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, GHD investigates the management decisions behind disease treatment and prevention globally. These lessons are disseminated through multiple channels, including open-access online professional communities, case studies, educational programs, and scholarly publications.
