Dr. Adekeye completed his medical training at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria in 2005. He subsequently worked in a combined President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and U.S. Department of Defense funded HIV program in northern Nigeria. Dr. Adekeye moved to the U.S. in 2008 and received a Masters of Public Health and a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Gerontology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2010.
Prior to joining the Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Dr. Adekeye served as a health literacy consultant with the North Carolina Health Literacy Council at the Center for Youth Family and Community Partnerships, University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He was also a Secretary of the Smoke Free Guilford Coalition, a statewide coalition instrumental in mobilizing grassroots’ support and passage of tobacco legislation in North Carolina.
He enjoys working with and advocating for the health of immigrant, elderly, and minority populations. His interests include HIV AIDS as it disproportionately affects minority populations, health literacy, and cultural competency from the public health policy perspective. Dr Adekeye's current research focus is the development and implementation of policies and practices, particularly in medical training settings, which promote health literacy and cultural competency to reduce health disparities.
