Dr. Mrs. Emilian Emeagwali, PT, MCMT
Physical Therapist

Dr. Emeagwali is a physical therapist, a businesswoman and owner of State Of The Art Physical Therapy Rehabilitation, P.C. in Valley Stream, New York. She is an Onitsha native in Anambra state, Nigeria. She attended elementary, secondary and undergraduate education in Nigeria prior to migrating to America in 1992 to join her husband. Upon her arrival, Dr. Emeagwali had a natural calling to help people, hence, she pursued education in the medical profession. In 2006, she completed a doctoral program in Physical Therapy (DPT) from Stony Brook University in New York. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Brooklyn College NY 2001, A.A.S with honors in Physical Therapy from LaGuardia Community College NY 1997 and Higher National Diploma in Insurance from Institute of Management and Technology Enugu, Nigeria 1989.

Dr. Emeagwali is married to Hon. Patrick Emeagwali and they both have five beautiful children. Her passion to help people is rooted in her upbringing by her late philanthropic parents, Mr. Vincent and Mrs. Margaret Onochie. In the quest to help her community, Dr. Emeagwali opened a Physical Therapy clinic in Valley Stream, New York in 2007 where she helps all her patients and offers her professional services regardless of their financial or insurance status.
In 2009, she founded this 501(C)(3) nonprofit public charity organization, after she visited her homeland in Nigeria. She was appalled by what she saw in her home town, many children go to sleep hungry, no clean water, no decent clothing, and some are unable to go to school because their parents cannot afford tuition. Furthermore, most public schools are not equipped with the basic needs to foster good education which results in the poor younger generation having a significant educational gap from their peers.

Dr. Emeagwali realizes that the time to act is now! Coronavirus pandemic quadrupled the suffering. We must rise to address the fast-growing humanitarian tasks brought about by the deteriorating economic situation in our society.
