    Habib Yakubu is talented at straddling divides. That make him valuable in the fight against pandemics.

    Though raised a Muslim, he attended a Christian school. Growing up in a low-income community without running water, he went on to study in Ghana, the United Kingdom and the U.S., earning his Master of Science in Public Health in Environmental Science and Engineering.
