Kwaku Ohene-Frempong Obituary



Kwaku Ohene-Frempong Obituary: Dr. Ohene-Frempong was born in Ghana, and his academic and athletic achievements gained him a scholarship to Yale University to study pre-medicine and, later, a trip to the Olympics to represent Ghana in track and field.

In 1975, he graduated from Yale School of Medicine with a medical degree. While pursuing his degree, his son was identified with sickle cell disease for the first time by Dr. Howard Pearson in Yale’s pioneering newborn screening program in 1972.

His personal experience with sickle cell disease and neonatal testing inspired him to devote his life and career to researching and campaigning for sickle cell patients.
