Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Spe­cial Col­lab­o­ra­tion Nancy Goss New­port, VT

The North­ern Ver­mont Cen­ter for Sleep Dis­or­ders wel­comes a new staff mem­ber. In­no­cent C. Ezenwa, MD is board cer­ti­fied in In­ter­nal Medicine and is a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Dr. Ezenwa joins Veronika Jedlovszky, MD and David Al­so­brook, MD. Dr. Jedlovszky is a pul­mo­nolo­gist and the med­i­cal di­rec­tor of the na­tion­ally ac­cred­ited lab.

“We are all very ex­cited about our new part­ner and the ex­pe­ri­ence he is bring­ing to us,” Dr. Jedlovszky said. “We are glad to be able to of­fer more ac­ces­si­bil­ity for the sleep lab and in­tro­duce pe­di­atric sleep medicine!”

Dr. Ezenwa is sur­prised and hum­bled by the wel­come and sup­port he has re­ceived from his col­leagues in the sleep lab and through­out the hos­pi­tal since he ar­rived on Au­gust 1.

“I couldn’t work with a bet­ter group of peo­ple,” he said. “It’s like one fam­ily. That means a lot to me.” In ad­di­tion, he said he is im­pressed by how much his col­leagues re­ally care about their pa­tients.

Join­ing Dr. Ezenwa in his new life in the North­east King­dom are his wife, Chinelo, and their three chil­dren. “We love it here,” he said. “We love the coun­try and liv­ing close to na­ture.”

A na­tive of Nige­ria, Dr. Ezenwa earned his doc­tor­ate’s de­gree from the Univer­sity of Benin School of Medicine in Benin-city, Nige­ria. He com­pleted his in­tern­ship and res­i­dency in In­ter­nal Medicine at the Univer­sity of Ne­vada in Reno, Ne­vada. In ad­di­tion, he com­pleted a clin­i­cal fel­low­ship in Sleep Medicine from the Univer­sity of Louisville in Louisville, Ken­tucky.

Shop­pers en­joyed won­der­ful weather as they browsed the stands of the Stanstead Farm­ers Mar­ket last Sun­day. See you next year!
