Dr. Naomi Adjei was born and raised in Tema, Ghana. She moved to the United States in 2005 and joined Weequahic High School as a sophomore. She later graduated as the Valedictorian of the Class of 2007. Naomi was part of the Cross Country and Track and Field Team, Yearbook Club, and National Honor Society. While at Weequahic High School, she participated in the Talent Search Summer Enrichment Program at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where she met Ms. Giannelli Lynch (now Mrs. Aldo) who has remained a blessing to Naomi in her pursuit of higher education.
Naomi obtained her Bachelor’s of Science in Human Biology, Health and Society with a concentration in Global Health at Cornell University (Class of 2011). After graduation, Naomi moved to Baltimore as an Amgen Fellow. She taught 7th and 8th grade Science and Health at Hazelwood Middle School in the Baltimore City Public School System as part of Teach for America.
While in Baltimore, Naomi coached ten of her students to prepare independent research projects for the Morgan State University Annual STEM Competition in March 2012 and 2013 where students won first and second place junior team awards, and a meritorious achievement award from the United States Public Health Service.
Naomi was also awarded the Sue Lehmann Excellence in Teaching Finalist (2013) and Maryland Governor’s Volunteer Service Award (2012); and was nominated for the New Teacher of the Year award in the school system. During that time, Naomi obtained her Masters of Education from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education.
After her commitment to Teach for America, Naomi pursued medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. While in medical school, she developed a passion for addressing health equity and improving health outcomes for vulnerable populations, particularly children and women. As such, she pursued a Masters of Public Health in Health Policy with a focus on Maternal and Child Health, as well as Public Health Leadership at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Her passion for population health led her, with the support of physicians and medical students, to initiate a comprehensive sexual health education program to address teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases in Central Falls, RI. She also worked with a team at the Hawaii Department of Health to evaluate a teen dating violence prevention campaign. Naomi received the United States Public Health Service Excellence in Public Health Award in 2018.
Naomi is now in her third year of residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale New Haven Hospital, where she cares for pregnant women and provides surgical care from women with reproductive health disorders including abnormal uterine bleeding, fibroids, infertility, and gynecologic cancer.
Naomi is honored to be a Weequahic High School Alumni Association Hall of Distinction Inductee. Naomi credits her success at Weequahic to the support and generosity of many of her teachers and administrators, including Mr. Healy, Mr. Young, Mrs. Haden, Ms. Bogan, Mrs. Mrs. Lorquet, Mr. Cherian, Ms. Tamarkin, Ms. Daley, Ms. Springer, Mrs. Stackhouse, Ms. Findley, Coach Zahir, and Mrs. Robinson.
