Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to increase awareness regarding non-communicable diseases and its complication in a way that truly makes an impact to the community and helps them to see the magnitude of the issue. I would also like to promote healthy lifestyle and other methods of prevention/health promotion.
It's all part of making a better world.
Reduce the number of individuals presenting with cardiovascular problems and diabetes complications, particularly at a young age.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by community members such as middle aged, working adults as well as the elderly. The main target will be those in the low and middle income groups, as these individuals will benefit the most through prevention and reduced personal healthcare costs
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increased awareness on non-communicable diseases and its consequences
Adoption of healthy eating and lifestyle as a whole
Better mental health and socioeconomic status
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Reduced number of patients presenting with these preventable issues, as well as better quality of life (reduced DALYs) for patients and community as a whole
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
