2018 seems to be a good year for renowned Ghanaian Prostate scientist and Professor of Alternative Medicine, Dr Raphael Nyarkotey Obu as he keeps grabbing enviable awards both locally and internationally.
Just when he thought he had had enough for a year, Christmas came early for the young health professional with an FN Business Award.
The second edition of awards which took place over the weekend saw Dr. Obu pick up the award for Best Researcher in Prostate Care.
The FN business award is to celebrate Ghanaian businesses and encourage young entrepreneurs.
“Dr. Raphael Nyarkotey Obu has been honoured with the Best researcher in prostate cancer at the FN Business Awards. FN Business Awards celebrates Ghanaian businesses and those who have contributed immensely to their profession,” citation presented to the doctor read.
This enviable award was waiting for Dr. Obu after he had returned from South Africa where he was named CNBC Africa AABLA Innovator of the year Finalist.
This year alone, Dr. Obu can count over 10 awards including the 40under40 awards which fetched him a credit in the prestigious Forbes.
Obviously impressed by the formulation of what he called the Men’s Formula, the global prostate fraternity cannot but applaud the incalculable stride made by the young Ghanaian doctor.
Affecting millions of men across the globe, Prostate Cancer is probably the most petrifying ailment a man could ever encounter in his life time.
To ensure that many do not go down the rabbit hole of despair, Dr. Obu, has spent several years in researching health interventions that would help fight the disease.
The Men’s Formula which is manufactured by the RNG Medical Research Lab in Ghana and approved by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has been formulated with 14 different prostate Phyto ingredients.
According to the renowned prostate expert, this is the first Ghanaian product that contains such ingredients and has been formulated based on science and research.
The product has passed through all animal analysis and Dr. Nyarkotey has partnered several world centres to start clinical trials in humans.
