“What an absorbing Speciality! I have enjoyed the social, cultural, psychological, cognitive and biological aspects of ageing. To consolidate my interests in inter-disciplinary perspective of ageing, including the implications of ageing on wider health, social and policy processes, I have completed my Masters (MSc) in Gerontology from Kings College London. My original piece of research was in Older People & Offending.
I am a firm believer in “prevention of diseases and maintaining health”. I enjoy integrating evidence based knowledge and skills of “Ayurveda Nutrition & Lifestyle Practices” in day today clinical practice.”
