Award-winning associate professor and nonprofit medical director
shares what drew her to a career in medicine.
One of eight children, Dr. Oriaku A. Kas-Osoka, MD, an
associate professor in the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine
at UNLV department of pediatrics, began reading fluently on
her mother’s knee at age three. During her childhood, nothing was
more enjoyable than burrowing deep under her bed covers and
reading by flashlight late into the night.
