I am a trained clinical (Medical) Pharmacologist with 13 years of experience to my credit. I published over 25 + articles on various topics in clinical Medicine, clinical Pharmacology & Medical education in reputed journals and many of these articles have high citation score. I have worked extensively in the field of community drug utilization and have brought about valuable changes in the society regarding information on use of drugs by way of health promotion. My publications regarding drug utilization point out to fundamental understanding of drug usage in the community. In 2013, I started with the concept of MOOCs via initiation of YouTube channel on " Speak book in Clinical Pharmacology and Public Health". I have till now listed about 120 + teaching & learning sessions on my channel with new teaching modalities.My channel has over 10000 active subscribers world wide to date and is rated as No.1 channel in the field of Prescribing and Public Health. My channel has over 2 million + views and many national and top international universities in the world have subscribers to my channel till now. I am actively engaged in developing Medical simulations and one of my creation "MECHANICAL CARDIAC PUMP FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION" was selected for oral presentation in "Innovation Category" for a national conference in 2014/15. My earlier work on " Animal Models in Inflammatory Bowel disease and wound healing " grabbed attention of many and this is evident through high citation scores of publications. My clinical work in the field of prescribing errors, Breast feeding and Osteoporosis has been appreciated in the form of award and publication in high impact medical Journals. I have worked extensively in many clinical trials as Principal and co-investigator (Phase-1 to Phase-3) and they were sponsored by the industry. My work in the field of osteoporosis, Dermatology and Diabetes Mellitus received special attention in the field of medicine due to introduction of new drugs in Indian market.I am currently working on exercise dependence in urban population and e-learning.

- Obesity is a major risk factor for various non-communicable diseases. The prevalence of
obesity is on the rise, especially in younger populations. Improper eating patterns coupled with lack
of physical activity have largely contributed to this problem. Medical students are exposed to social,
cultural and study related stress during their course period. These factors influence their patterns of
eating and physical activity. A cross sectional study was conducted among medical students of
Taylors’ University to study their nutrition habits and exercise pattern. A total of 159 medical
students participated in the study. It was found that 69.8% of students had normal BMI, 14.5% of
students were underweight and 15.7% students were overweight or obese. It was observed that the
prevalence of obesity was more in male students as compared to female students. Out of 159
students, 15.7% of students skipped breakfast. The major food items in the diet was a combination of
rice, egg, meat and vegetables. It was also noted that 42.1 % of the students consumed soda drink at
least once a week. Majority of our students were involved in intentional physical activity of some
kind and they were aware about the importance of both good nutrition and physical activity in
maintaining good health. (SCOPUS-Indexed)
- Whole grain consumption is associated with several health benefits. Little is known however, about whole grain consumption patterns in medical students in Malaysia. The objective of this study was to assess whole grain intake pattern and its determinants amongst Malaysian medical students. A cross sectional study investigating whole grain intake amongst 151 medical students in a private medical University in Malaysia was conducted. A self-administered questionnaire was used to assess socio demographic variables, the whole grain intake pattern and the knowledge and attitudes towards whole grain intake. The prevalence of reported whole grain intake in the past 3 months was 51%.Chinese ethnicity, readiness to adhere to Malaysian food pyramid and self-preparation of food and eating at home were significantly associated with whole grain consumption. However, the primary determinants of food choice like education, knowledge and affordability did not seem to influence whole grain consumption. Whole grain consumption is relatively low amongst Malaysian medical students. Cultural background and self-belief influence this practice despite being from the medical fraternity. Efforts are needed to bridge the knowledge – practice gap by assessing the barriers to whole grain consumption in order to design effective initiatives to promote an increase in whole grain consumption.

- Of late, universal access to health-care has been widely discussed and examined, but prevention is
indisputably better than cure where health is concerned.Lifestyle choices have a significant impact on our susceptibility to chronic diseases such as heart and lung disease, cancer and diabetes.
These so-called non-communicable diseases (NCDs) - also known as lifestyle diseases - are responsible for nearly 70% of deaths globally. Ischaemic heart disease tops the cause of deaths worldwide, followed by stroke while chronic obstructive airways disease (a smoking-related chronic lung disease), lung cancer and diabetes are the fourth, fifth and sixth biggest killers respectively.
Data from the Department of Statistics and Health Ministry show that the leading cause of death in Malaysia in 2016 was ischaemic heart disease (13.2%). Other NCDs such as stroke, diabetes, lung cancer and chronic obstructive airways rank among the top 10 causes of death in this country. Besides the millions of preventable and premature deaths from NCDs, the economic burden of managing these diseases and their complications is huge and remains a pressing issue globally. Changes in lifestyle, socio-demographic and economic transition, improved affordability, ease of trade and travel, and urban hunger have contributed significantly to the emergence of NCDs as the leading cause of deaths globally, including in Malaysia.High blood sugar, raised blood pressure, high level of cholesterol, obesity and physical inactivity have been recognised as the most
prevalent (common) risk factors for NCDs which, if recognised and managed efficiently, can help reduce the burden of the diseases. Consumption of an unhealthy diet comprising few fruits and vegetables, high salt and trans-fats,physical inactivity, tobacco use, and harmful alcohol use are the common "behaviourally modifiable" risk factors of NCDs. Prevention of NCDs requires management of the "risk factors" right from the early years of life. The health and social needs of populations should be considered at all stages of the life course, starting from preconception right to adulthood. This needs to be supported by facilities for early detection and treatment of the diagnosed conditions.Individuals with risk factors who do not have any symptoms must be able to access these healthcare services too.Dealing with chronic NCDs remains a constant challenge for healthcare providers all over the world. Diseases such as diabetes and heart problems are complex to manage and require concerted efforts by the individual as well as the healthcare system.
Prevention of complications of these diseases significantly reduces mortality and aids in improving the
quality of life of the person. As adults, we must lead by example and start encouraging our children to adopt healthy eating habits at home and school, together with being physically active to preventing these lifestyle diseases.
