Presidential Pulse: Conversation With A President’s Physician

My guest tonight is a medical doctor with experience that few practitioners have.

Dr. Bettina Ama Boohene-Andah President John Kufuor’s personal Physician when he was in office. In fact, she still is his doctor 10 years after leaving the presidency. She’s a nutritionist as well, and author of “The President’s Physician”, the book in which she recounts her unique experience as the young woman responsible for ensuring the President was alive and fit for purpose.

In the aftermath of Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia having taken ill recently and flown out to recuperate, I thought she might just be the right person to have drinks with so we can better understand what caring for the health needs of a person charged with the care of a nation entails.
