Commenting on the talk, Dr Avinesh said, “I was pleasantly surprised that the response to the talk was better than what I had expected. The talk covered sleep disordered breathing and its impact on the patient’s health. The audience was introduced to the concept of sleep and health issues in the patients’ overall well-being, including the common sleep disorders.“ Dr Avinesh is a graduate of the IMU MBBS.
