Resident Physician Charles Odonkor, M.D., Honored with the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award

Dr. Odonkor with Dr. Pablo Celnik at the award ceremony.

Since 2014, Charles Odonkor and a few colleagues have offered a free writing and review service to help minority students craft compelling, error-free essays as part of their applications for college and medical school. The fourth-year resident in physiatry also collects late-version textbooks and tablets loaded with links to various open-source medical libraries so that disadvantaged medical students in countries such as his native Ghana can have access to necessary information.

As a founder of Project REACH, Representatives for Equal Access to Community Health, Odonkor has helped more than 400 students since 2011. Additionally, Odonkor organizes an orthopaedics shadowing program that lets local students observe African-American physicians and scientists.

Dr. Odonkor is also a recipient of the Best Paper Award in the resident category awarded at the 2017 AAP Annual Meeting for his paper Establishing Physiatry Abroad: Novel use of A Decision Matrix Framework to Identify and Address Rehabilitation Medicine Training in subSaharan Africa.
