She was awarded the Community Pediatrician Award in 2015 and was recognized on the Boston Combined Residency Program Teaching Honor Roll in 2017. She is the author of several publications.

Dr. Epee-Bounya started her Pediatric career by working for five years in Pediatric Emergency Medicine before moving to General Pediatrics. She has been the Clinical Director of Pediatric and Adolescent at Boston’s Children Primary Care clinic at Martha Eliot for the past decade, combining a busy clinical practice and administrative responsibilities.

She spent her childhood in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa, before moving to the United States to attend university. She obtained her medical degree from George Washington University Medical School in Washington, DC and completed her pediatric residency at Children’s National Medical Center, also in Washington, DC. Her love for Africa has remained intact, and her passion to ease the burden for families to find care for their children has grown into a mobile health initiative to provide trusted, timely pediatric advice for families in Africa.

Dr. Epee-Bounya founded Daktari, an mHealth app designed to enable the connection of parents living in Africa to trusted Pediatricians who can put their mind at ease by providing trusted information on common pediatric health conditions.  She is developing Daktari to serve families much like her own.
