The Power List 2019
As Founding Partner, CEO, and Chief Consultant Pathologist at Lancet Group Laboratories, East Africa, Ahmed has successfully brought affordable, quality, and accessible pathology services across the region. He was nominated for the positive impact he has had on medical practice, pathology resident education, and research in Africa. “I had my epiphany moment when I was told to look at a Merkel cell tumor. I literally saw the proverbial light down the microscope and realized that pathology provides the diagnosis and enables appropriate patient management. I immediately decided that I wanted to become a pathologist rather than a surgeon,” Ahmed says.
