Inspiration for medical career

I have always had a desire to improve cardiovascular risk profiles to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke in my patients. My father and brother ,as cardiologists, inspired me in this field. I am keen to keep myself fit and encourage my patients to look at lifestyle management.
