A graduate of Harvard College and the Yale School of Medicine, Kwabena “Bobo” Blankson is a Board-Certified pediatrician with subspecialty training in Adolescent Medicine. During his thirteen years of military service, Doctor Bobo had the privilege of working with real American heroes and fulfilling a dream that began in his childhood: taking care of G.I. Joes (and Janes). He moved to Dallas, TX in 2015, partnering with Girls to Women Health and Wellness Clinic to launch Young Men’s Health and Wellness, a gender-based medical clinic offering holistic care to teens and young adults. He concurrently serves as a medical consultant to the positive psychology consulting firm GoodThink, with a focus on positive medicine and culinary medicine. Doctor Bobo has published in peer-reviewed journals on adolescent healthcare utilization, obesity, sports injury and energy-drink consumption and has been featured on NYTimes.com, HuffingtonPost.com, CNN.com, Time.com, Forbes.com, CBSnews.com, and more. Most recently, he served as a featured expert on Oprah’s Happiness OCourse and joined the Board of Advisors for Athlete Foundry, a startup aimed at preparing student-athletes for a life in and beyond sports.
Bobo’s wife and three daughters know that fantasy football is his kryptonite; they have used this information to their advantage on many occasions. His other hobbies include sports, writing, cooking, guitar, and video games. Under the right circumstances, he thinks Batman could totally kick Superman’s ass.
