LYANGA: JOHN of WINDSOR

Posted by on October 29, 2016

Dr. John Jacob Lyanga, allergist and community leader, died in his South Windsor home on Tuesday evening at age 65. Dr. Lyanga lived in Windsor for 19 years and served the community as a passionate and dedicated defender of equality and justice for visible minorities. Born in Ulemo, Tanzania, Dr. Lyanga was proud to serve as the president of the African Community Organization of Windsor for 10 years, bridging the divide between African immigrants and the political and social system of their adopted homeland, Canada. Dr. Lyanga was active in local and provincial political campaigns for 17 years. As a founding member of the Windsor-Essex International Medical Graduates (Windsor-Essex IMG) he was a strong advocate for improved methods of assessing, retraining and accrediting international medical graduates as well as all other foreign-trained professionals who face similar barriers. After graduating from Makerere Medical School in Uganda in 1967, Dr. Lyanga went on to do post-graduate medical training in England. He arrived in Canada in 1973 with his wife Scholastica and his young daughter Jacqueline. As he pursued specialized post-graduate studies and masters degrees at Queen’s University, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary and McGill University, his other three children were born. Dr. Lyanga taught at the University of Manitoba and was actively involved in the drive to establish a medical school in Windsor. Further to this, Dr. Lyanga contributed to a biology textbook currently used by grade 12 students and wrote literature for the treatment of asthma in children. He practiced at Allergy & Respirology Associates until 1994 when he launched a solo practice, JM Allergy Care. From the beginning, his wife Scholastica worked alongside him. Dr. Lyanga was the current 2nd Vice-President of the Essex County Medical Society and a 4th degree Sir Knight of the Knights of Columbus.
