The 32-year-old doctor was recognised by AvenueCalgary magazine as top 40 people who are under the age of 40 doing great things.

In explaining why she merited the Top 40 Under 40 award, the magazine said the 32-year-old Nigerian is an award-winning researcher and pediatric surgery fellow who has used her expertise to bring down borders in providing surgical service to patients.

Tito is of the strong belief that patients should be able to access a surgeon whenever they need one without anything acting as a barrier.
