Dr. G. S. K. Velu, Chairman & Managing Director, Neuberg Diagnostics Private Limited said, “Metabolic diseases are growing at alarming rates. Obesity plays an important role in the increased prevalence of comorbid conditions including dyslipidaemia, hypertension, type 2 diabetes & reproductive endocrinology. Lifestyle modification is the mainstay of prevention and treatment but it can be costly and labour-intensive. Just a prescription cannot change something as fundamental as the way we live. What patients need is a health management strategy that takes into account our expertise, new technologies and what’s trending out there. This is what we hope to achieve in this conference. Today we also remember Dr. Ajit Golwilkar, who is no longer with us, for the advancements he brought to the Indian pathology community, and for grooming innumerable pathologists and laboratory professionals during his illustrious career. His absence is deeply felt. PathFinders 2019 is a testament to his legacy.”
“What we need is to improve the care of patients with lifestyle diseases. At this conference we aim is to explore ways to simplify Diagnosis & treatment across the country” said Dr. Awanti Golwilkar - Mehendale, Director and Chief of Lab, A.G Diagnostics Private Ltd., at the event.
