Martin Agyei

Martin Agyei is a physician specialist, dermatologist, and lecturer at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology—Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi, Ghana. He specializes in skin diseases among people with diabetes and HIV. Carolyn is the second University of New Hampshire (UNH) researcher and Inquiry author whom he has mentored. Dr. Agyei was connected with Carolyn through his acquaintance with Dr. Harkless, who has visited KATH. Dr. Agyei was very supportive of Carolyn’s research, including recruiting patients, translating interviews, and driving Carolyn to some subjects’ homes. He was impressed with Carolyn’s commitment to her project and recalls that Carolyn provided life-saving compassion for one patient, who felt others had given up on her. Dr. Agyei’s mentorship to UNH undergraduate researchers has been invaluable.
