After returning from England in the late 1960s, I started my professional career at the 'Sylhet Medical College and Hospital' which later on was renamed as 'Sylhet M A G Osmani Medical College and Hospital'. Over the course of the next ten years I noticed Sylhet had a high number of diabetic and cardiac patients, probably the highest in Bangladesh. Genetic disposition and lifestyle play key roles for both of these two diseases. I thought about establishing a nonprofit, self-sustaining diabetic hospital and a cardiac hospital in Sylhet to tackle these two life threatening diseases and to bring awareness among people in order to reduce the risks of both diabetes and heart disease.
