In a couple of years, I would like to see myself educating and leading a small bunch of people with continuous learning process and enhancing knowledge in the field related works.

With due course of time I want to develop my field knowledge based on my previous interest on the subjects of health research, tribal health, inequity and identifying the gaps on health delivery systems, oral health and hygiene.

My goals with respect to the upcoming years as a young public health professional are as follows:
• Self-development – working papers, abstract writing, scientific temperament
• Self-sufficient and self-efficient
• Working in and with an or multiple organizations
• Helping health organization with inter-sectoral approach
• Try to be grounded to my basic understanding of social determinants of health (Dr. TK Sundari Ravindran has made a deeper impact on my understanding of SDH frame works, and as she always tell ‘not to blame the victim’ – this phrase will always be there with me and I hope to do carry forward her teachings.
• Grass root level advocacy for those who are special and underprivileged
• Building trust with the community and their participation

The long-term goal for me is to work constantly on human centric approach in the field of preventive medicine. It would be a dream come true, if started with PhD programme from a reputed institute in the coming years and this can be considered as the close aim of my life in the present time. My passion for teaching was from very beginning and I would like to see myself teaching young health professional in future perspective.
