Recent graduate presents at area symposium

Update | Tuesday, December 7, 2021

Columbus State alum Akosua Ofosuhene presented at the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Virtual Research Symposium on November 19. Ofosuhene worked with Ohio State faculty mentor Charles Emery to conduct an Activity Level Monitoring Study (ALMS) in the summer of 2019. The ALMS intended to evaluate an intervention to reduce sedentary behavior by raising awareness of how often individuals were sitting.

An honors and LSAMP student, Ofosuhene was also earned a Choose Ohio First scholarship through the Future Scientists of Ohio program. She served as a student ambassador, participating in STEM Club, and as a mentee and mentor in Women’s Connection.

Ofosuhene won the 2021 Outstanding Women’s Leader Award. She majored in biology and pre-med and graduated in Spring 2021. Ofosuhene then transferred to Pomona College in Claremont, California, on a pre-med track. She is interested in finding non-pharmacological ways to administer pain medications to potentially reduce the opioid crisis in the nation. Ofosuhene aims to become a physician and eventually return to her home country, Ghana, to help with the health system there.
