I am a physician from Pakistan with a lot of passion for clinic research. I joined MASALA Study in 2014.I enjoy interacting with participants and following up with them via eMASALA to help identify etiology and risk factors that can help prevent cardiovascular diseases in South Asians living in North America. I work closely with participants to track any event that might have occurred in the past few days. I also enjoy data collection directly from participants to learn about social influences and what their diet and exercise patterns have on cardiovascular health. I am very excited to be a part of MASALA Study that targets South Asian population and provides an opportunity to work on preventing cardiovascular diseases in south Asians.
