Dami graduated from Harvard with a degree in History and Science before deciding to attend medical school at Duke University.

Given his passion and interest in health inequities, Dami decided to pursue an MPH at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health as part of his third-year research experience. During this time, he led a research project comparing the relative proportion of different races and ethnicities enrolled in clinical trials and registries for heart failure. In recognition of his outstanding performance, Dami received the Russell P. Harris Award which is given to one MD/MPH student per year.

Dami’s interests include history, music, and policy podcasts.
