Dr. Simbo Aduloju Joins Georgia Cancer Specialists
Founder of Nigerian Community Health Awareness Now Practicing at Largest Private Oncology Practice in the Southeast
Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS) — the largest private medical oncology/hematology practice in the Southeast — continues to expand with the addition of Dr. Simbo Aduloju to its team of dedicated professionals.
Dr. Aduloju will practice at GCS’s Stemmer (Decatur), Rockdale, and Hillandale (Lithonia) offices. GCS now has 43 physicians and 30 offices.
“We’re excited about adding Dr. Aduloju to the team,” said Dr. Bruce Feinberg, President/CEO of GCS. “His experience and education make him a real asset to Georgia Cancer Specialists.”
Dr. Aduloju received his B.Sc. in Biology from City College of New York, and went on to graduate from the Southern University of New York Downstate College of Medicine. He completed his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in hematology and oncology at Emory University School of Medicine.
Dr. Aduloju is a member of the American College of Physicians and has been awarded the Zemansky Introduction to Physics Prize, the Minority Access to Research Career Scholarship, and the Edward Stein Full Tuition Scholarship Award.
Dr. Aduloju has a strong commitment to community involvement. He is the founder of the Nigerian Community Health Awareness Initiative, which is an organization that works to break the barriers between Nigerian culture and health issues. It educates people about the importance of cancer, blood pressure, and diabetes screening in familiar settings like churches and cultural gatherings. He has also volunteered with the Daniel Hill Williams Society of Downstate Medical School, which exposes minority high school students to careers in medicine, and the Chelsea Village Program of St Vincent Hospital, which provides medical home visits to house-bound elderly patients.
Georgia Cancer Specialists is the largest private medical oncology/hematology practice in the Southeast and a leader in advanced cancer treatment and research. The practice offers community-based medical oncology and hematology services and is the first private oncology practice to also provide a full range of support services for patients in Georgia, including nutritional counseling, pain management, wellness counseling, and home health coordination. The GCS research department, whose focus is bringing targeted cancer therapy to communities, is the first in Georgia to offer Phase I clinical trials, the most novel cancer therapies available. GCS has 30 offices, over 40 physicians, and more than 480 support staff members located in Metro Atlanta, North and Central Georgia, Southeast Tennessee, and Southwest North Carolina, and provides care through approximately 205,000 annual patient visits.
