Dr. Jan Machnio received a Medical Degree in Poland where he practiced as a Family Physician and Director of Health Region for 10 years. He was found to work many night shifts by choice.

He ran as a Director and Physician of a clinic in Gusau, Nigeria. His career was driven by his heart. He loved helping ALL people. Money was never an objective.
