BIOGRAPHY OF LATE OLUCHUKWU UWAKWE NNODI M.D. PHD

Olly was born on 24th February 1969 to the family of Chief Anukem O. Nnodi and Lolo Keziah C. Nnodi. He was the second of five children and his parents were both senior civil servants. His father was an accomplished Soil Scientist who got his first degree from University College London (Ibadan campus) and a Master's degree from the University of Aberdeen and rose to become a Director for over ten years in the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in Nigeria.

Olly started primary school at Fisher primary school, Umuahia, opposite Government College Umuahia (formerly Fisher High School). He completed primary 3 to 6 at St Anne's Primary School (boarding) School, Kakuri, Kaduna. He got admission into the prestigious Federal Government College, Malali Kaduna in 1980 from where he graduated with a brilliant result in his WASC examinations. He went on to do A-levels at Federal Government College, Port-Harcourt.

As a teenager, Olly was always the first on the scene with a first aid box when his siblings got any scrapes and cuts, so it wasn't a surprise when he choose to pursue a career in medicine. He got admission into the University of Jos, Plateau State, in 1986 to read Medicine and Surgery, from where he graduated as a medical doctor.

Olly started off his career as a hosue officer at the University of Port-Harcourt Teaching Hospital, Port-Harcourt before going on to do his National Youth Service in Lagos. After this, he carried on with his medical career in Lagos, working in several capacities including as a medical advisor for ConocoPhilips Oil Company. He went on to become the Medical Director for TOCARO Emergency Medical Services.

Olly had a passion for improving safety in drug administration, especially in third world countries and this led him to complete an MSc in Pharmacology at the University of Lagos. He then went on to complete a PhD in Toxicology at Rutgers University, New Jersey with a thesis on the Comparative Neurotoxicity of Amphotericin B and Amphotericin B Methyl Esther in Mice and on Oligodendrocytes in Culture. Whilst there, he also held the following positions: Graduate Assistant at Rutgers University, Junior Research fellow at Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation and Pharmaceutical quality; environmental health and safety taxicology intern/consultant. At the time of his death, Olly was serving as the Chief Medical officer of Alliance MTM, a company set up to ensure optimal medication therapy and improved medication adherence.

Olly was married to PaShawnda briley on May 24th, 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He deeply loved, protected and cherished his wife daily. Olly spiritually cared for his wife by showering her with prayers, love, and many many moments of laughter and dancing.

Olly was a wonderful and caring husband, son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend. He was someone who brought joy to so many; he spent a lot of time solving problems for other people and was very generous with his time and resources.
