On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, Prosper Yao Tsikata speaks with Dr. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, affectionately known as "the heart man of Ghana."

Frimpong-Boateng performed Ghana's first open-heart surgery and established the Ghana Heart Foundation, which raises funds to assist those who cannot afford the cost of heart surgery.

Dr. Frimpong-Boateng was honored at this year's African Heroes Night at Ohio University for his significant contribution to the continent of Africa.
