Dr. Afua Adjei-Kwayisi
Following her graduation from Palmer’s Davenport
campus in 2015, Afua Adjei-Kwayisi, M.D., D.C.,
followed her dream to return to her home country
and become the first health-care professional
in Ghana to have both a medical and a doctor of
“I have a huge passion and high sense of mission
to educate several millions of Ghanians and
Africans on true wellness and the principles and
holistic benefits of chiropractic care,” she says.
More than four years ago, Dr. Adjei-Kwayisi moved
to Iowa to attend Palmer, leaving her daughter to
live with Afua’s mother halfway across the world.
But it was a sacrifice she was willing to make.
“Health care in Ghana is scarce and only for people
who can afford it,” she says. “I have a calling to
make chiropractic care accessible to all as I care for
as many families as possible.”
