Dedicated researcher with the mission of curating medical information and making it available to layman audiences.

I’ve always been passionate about biology and healthcare topics. I borrowed my aunt’s medicine books when I couldn’t read and imagined I was lecturing others about the human body. Since then, researching, learning, and teaching have been the cornerstone of my medical practice, and I believe information is the most important asset a patient can have before and after visiting a doctor’s office.
