Dr. Ugwu Promotes Life in the “Little Apple”
Dr. Boma Ugwu, Stormont Vail Health’s behavioral health provider in Manhattan, is featured on the Made for Manhattan campaign. Made for Manhattan is a promotional effort by the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce to encourage people to live and work in Manhattan by supplying information about activities, events and jobs that make the community a fit.
Dr. Ugwu shares, “This is one of the best places I have practiced. I love it here. If you want to move to a beautiful city where you can enjoy nature, have a great work/life balance, and see a variety of patients, then think Manhattan.”
The campaign shares stories about people who have chosen Manhattan as a place to call home. Dr. Ugwu represents the healthcare industry in a series featuring the industries of Manhattan. The Made for Manhattan healthcare industry page can be accessed here.
