In this issue, you will find a special article by Dr Uday Jadhav on how he sets an exampleto his patients by staying fit. As doctors, we advise the patients to maintain good habits andhygienic life-style. But patients will trust us only when the medical profession sets a practical example. Thus,Dr Jadhav's personal life of staying fit and avoid weight gain is a living proof that doctors can be the rolemodels for their patients and families in leading a healthy life. Kudos to Dr Jadhav, an eminent and reputedcardiologist in the country for being a shining example. The community will benefit from emulating Dr Jadhavto obtain freedom from cardiovascular diseases--- by healthy living!
