Young doctor's Family Life: Being in a nuclear family Dr. Haleema was loved and cared by both her parents. Her father helped her built the strength and vigor for becoming the doctor she stand of today and her mother lovingly supported her as a best friend and critic.

Life as a Doctor: She did her schooling at Sri Kumaran children's home one of the best schools in Bengaluru and soon after qualified triumphantly for the free seat in medical. The news was extremely happy but staying alone in hostel for 5 years was very tough for the initial few months. Soon, she settled well and started enjoying the company of her friends while working extremely hard in her career to graduate as a doctor. Her parents were hugely proud and shortly after she married and settled in Saudi with her husband where she started work as an Intensivist at a hospital.
Life changing Impact: As we feel life is being the best for us it comes to a halt. Suddenly, she started experiencing episodes of dizziness, sweating and palpitations and on investigation it was discovered that she had hypoglycemic episodes but the reason was undetected. She moved back to India until she recovered. Unfortunately, the recovery time lasted too long and she couldn't continue her job in Saudi. During her interim she started her private practice, but the professional domain on digital health and medicine became intriguing for her. She researched briefly and started her journey in the field of telemedicine. After this she never stopped and in her words "The field of Telemedicine was most exhilarating for it's reach especially during the Covid period, I could see 7000 plus patients and help them on a probono basis through telemedicine which would have been impossible otherwise".

She firmly believes the trials and tribulations she faced in her journey made her what she is today and she is extremely grateful for them.
Her major aim is to create more awareness about the use of digital health among both doctors and patients and assist more and more people.
