What is your background?I serve as a medical specialist in the field of Radiology at multiple private clinics located in the suburban regions. My range of expertise spans reporting x-rays, mammograms, ultrasounds, CT, and MRI scans, in addition to performing musculoskeletal pain relief injections and biopsies.
How did you come to Lifestyle Medicine?
As a health professional, my interests have grown beyond traditional medicine. My general practitioner pointed me towards the Lifestyle Medicine Society, having noticed my keen interest in plant-based diets. This led me on an enlightening journey, and, as the saying goes, the rest is history.
