"I'm very grateful for all of us that are in good health. I continue to pray for those that have been infected with this virus. I also pray for all the healthcare professionals that are putting their health at risk. As I look back at these last two months, I’m thankful that I came back from Africa before COVID-19 took the world by storm. It’s unfortunate that this took place during Easter and as a result, I haven’t been able to visit my parents in Savannah, GA and my sister, Yvette Naniuzeyi 08’, hasn’t been able to travel back to Georgia. We are doing our best to comply with the social distancing orders. On a brighter note we always call each other most days of the week and stay healthy isolated in our homes."
- Emmanuel (Moe) Naniuzeyi '06
After graduating from AIS in 2006, I attended Elon University in North Carolina. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Sports Science and soon started my professional career in the fitness industry. I was able to gain experience in fitness consulting then slowly made my transition to the medical field. Over the last 7 years I’ve specialized in rehabilitation programs for integrated medical clinics. I’m currently still working in physical medicine as a physical therapy consultant and therapist for decompression therapy at the Atlanta Medical Center.

Being in the medical field for many years has taught me the importance of not only taking care of yourself physically but also taking care of the environments around you. Ever since the global pandemic of COVID-19 has taken place, our working environment has been on high alert to ensure the safety of the staff and the patients that enter the office. I feel that my anxiety has gone up because I still have to go into the office while potentially exposing myself to a virus that is spreading rapidly. I have to constantly remind myself to keep a clean environment and keep all areas sanitized. It does become stressful at times because you have to protect the patients while protecting yourself, hence the workload increases due to more safety protocols being put in place. To ensure the safety of the staff and patients, we must each check our body temperatures upon arrival. Any temperature that is above 100.4 Fahrenheit is considered a fever.

I’m very grateful for all of us that are in good health. I continue to pray for those that have been infected with this virus. I also pray for all the healthcare professionals that are putting their health at risk. As I look back at these last two months, I’m thankful that I came back from Africa before COVID-19 took the world by storm. It’s unfortunate that this took place during Easter and as a result, I haven’t been able to visit my parents in Savannah, GA and my sister, Yvette Naniuzeyi 08’, hasn’t been able to travel back to Georgia. We are doing our best to comply with the social distancing orders. On a brighter note we always call each other most days of the week and stay healthy isolated in our homes.
