Psychiatrists predict that the use of transdermal drug delivery for mental health medications will be extremely beneficial.

Her pamphlet on Mental Health Matters is being used in both Nigeria and the United States in behavioral and rehabilitation facilities.

Dr. Ekiomoado has received recognition for her contributions to the field of mental health in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa at large.

She has extensive experience working with underserved and marginalized populations in IDP camps.

The stigma associated with mental health is widespread in our society, affecting people of all socioeconomic backgrounds. The spotlight is on Ekiomoado Esekhaigbe, a young Nigerian Professional dedicated to researching innovative ways to alleviate the burdens of mental health stigma.
