Benedict Akimana

I am from Kisoro, South Western Uganda. I received my Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery from Kampala International University, and my Masters of Medicine in Psychiatry from Makerere University. My research interest is to find out the genetic risk (factors) of anxiety disorders and their impact on quality of life and school performance among college students in Uganda. In five years I envisage myself leading the college surveys and using the data to improve the livelihoods of individuals with mental illnesses in Uganda. I enjoy traveling, watching football and television shows.
