Overview


How is it that we can help and inspire as many people as possible in this lifetime of ours? This thought fueled my passion and life's pursuits; that is broadly  epidemiology of chronic diseases and pursuing innovative educational strategies to inspire all my students.  Education is indeed a powerful tool that can change the world and inspiring, developing and encouraging the next generation to achieve more than they believe will improve society as a whole.

    2. Innovative educational research to inspire the next generation to learn creatively, imaginatively and be much more competent that the current generation.
