About Dr. Kafilat (Ka-fee-lat) Salawu, DNP, FNP-C, AOCNP, BCPA.

We Provide Essential Services For Your Health.

As the Founder and Independent Health Advocate at Fides Health Advocates, LLC, I welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website!

 

As a young child, I witnessed the devastating impact of fragmented patient care firsthand when my beloved sibling fell seriously ill. The struggles my family faced in navigating the healthcare system left an indelible mark on our hearts. Little did I know that this pivotal moment would ignite my passion for becoming a healthcare professional and an advocate for those in need. Born in Sub-Sahara Africa and later migrating with my parents to the USA, life had always presented challenges. Our cultural differences and language barriers further compounded the difficulty of accessing quality healthcare. However, it was my sibling’s battle with a life-threatening illness and another loved one’s cancer diagnosis that brought these challenges to the forefront.

 

Throughout their health journey, my loved ones’ health outcomes were far from ideal. They endured long waiting periods for appointments, inconsistent communication among healthcare providers, and inadequate support in managing their symptoms. Witnessing my family’s pain and frustration ignited a fierce determination within me to make a difference in the lives of patients facing similar struggles.

 

Amidst these struggles, I realized the immense potential to effect change on a larger scale. In response to the pervasive inadequacies in healthcare systems, I took a leap of faith and founded Fides Health Advocates, LLC. The mission of Fides is clear: to bridge the gap between patients and the healthcare system, providing compassionate support, guidance, and advocacy during their healthcare journey with trust, understanding, and care.

 

The passion that fuels Fides Health Advocates is unshakeable, and my unwavering commitment to transforming lives gives me the strength to persevere. Fides is unique in its integrative and patient-centric approach. We collaborate with local healthcare providers to address the specific needs of adults with cancer and other chronic illnesses, ensuring that they received the care and attention they deserve. Through Fides, we break barriers, empowering patients to actively participate in their healthcare decisions and ensuring they received personalized, comprehensive, and culturally sensitive care.

 

As Fides continues to grow, my journey as a healthcare advocate has taken me beyond the confines of the local community. I participate in international conferences, sharing my experiences and insights to inspire others to make a difference. I also volunteer with the World Health Organization and Oncology National Certification Coorporation in an attempt to make the world a better place. I am grateful that Fides Health Advocates, LLC stands as a beacon of hope, guiding countless individuals through their healthcare challenges with compassion and understanding. My personal journey has taught me that the pursuit of one’s dreams, no matter how daunting, can create ripples of positive change that extend far beyond our wildest imaginations. I will continue to champion the cause of health equity and advocate for the rights of patients, knowing that every step taken brings us closer to a future where healthcare is truly about the patient, irrespective of their background or circumstances.
