President Joe Biden appoints Dr. Edjah Nduom to lead the fight against cancer in the United States

US President Joe Biden announced Wednesday he’s committing to reduce the cancer death rate by 50% — a new goal for the “moonshot” initiative against the disease that was announced in 2016 when he was vice president.

In achieving this, Dr. Edjah Nduom son of  Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has been honoured and appointed by President Joe Biden to lead the fight against cancer in the United States of America.

Biden has set a 25-year timeline for achieving that goal, part of his broader effort to end cancer as we know it, according to senior administration officials who previewed Wednesday’s announcement on the condition of anonymity.

The issue is deeply personal for Biden: He lost his elder son, Beau, to brain cancer in 2015. Yet the rollout comes without any new funding elements at a time when the gains from new research can be uneven, such that Biden is setting an aspiration for the country more than 50 years after President Richard Nixon signed the National Cancer Act and launched a war on the disease. The benefits of that act were seen recently in areas outside of cancer as well as vaccines that were developed for the coronavirus.

Dr. Edjah Nduom, associate professor in the department of neurosurgery at Emory University School of Medicine, introduced the president at Wednesday’s announcement at the White House, calling him the country’s “patient advocate-in-chief.” Dr Nduon, is the son of Ghanaian business magnate and former Presidential hopeful, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom.

“From my vantage point, as a neurosurgeon scientist, constantly thinking of ways to treat cancer patients, to fight cancer and seeing countless patients every year,” said Nduom. “I can confidently say this is the most exciting moment in the history of our field.”
