“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.” – Charles R. Swindoll

 In light of the 10th edition of H.E.A.R.T., we are delighted to welcome back Dr. Akeem Sule, a cherished member of our community, to offer a unique perspective on the theme of Chain Reaction. With the roles being reversed, Dr. Sule will be interviewed to unravel the interconnectedness of life’s moments — reflecting on how every experience, from early childhood to a professional career, has contributed to his journey as a psychiatrist and advocate for mental health. How did the uprooting from Nigeria to the UK influence his medical education? How can your hobbies influence the way you practice medicine?

As a Co-founder of HIP HOP PSYCH and a Consultant Psychiatrist in General Adult Psychiatry, Dr. Sule brings a wealth of expertise and passion to the table. From his medical education at the Ogun State University Teaching Hospital, Nigeria, to his Specialist Psychiatry training with the Oxford Rotational Scheme, UK, each step has contributed to his evolution as a physician dedicated to patient care and advocacy.

Dr. Sule has mentored resident doctors across the globe through his role as an Honorary Visiting Research Associate at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge. Renowned for his innovative teaching methods, including the “Old School Hip Hop Method of Teaching,” Dr. Sule has revolutionised medical education by infusing creativity and cultural relevance into his teachings. His contributions extend to advocacy work with the Association of Black Psychiatrists Culture Club and pioneering the use of film for medical and public mental health education.

Join us and Dr. Akeem Sule in exploring the transformative power of our collective journey.
