INTRODUCING OUR TEAM
Kris Vijay, President of Twinepidemic has had more than 30 years of experience as a practicing physician. He believes in energizing the younger generation to transform into compassionate and caring individuals through volunteerism. His focus is on recommitment to the passion of service & rekindling the humanism in all communities
Project C.U.R.E. has had the delight of coming alongside the beautiful Twinepidemic to assist with the fantastic work they are doing in India. We are working together to send a 40ft container of donated medical supplies and equipment specific to the needs of the community which Dr. Vijay is personally working towards assisting. We feel honored to partner with a wonderful organization like Twinepidemic and look forward to continuing to work together to support the needs of the community.
I have remained involved in ongoing collaborations with Twin Epidemic, the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona, and the Cardio Renal Society of America. Twin Epidemic has earned international acclaim for its development of consensus guidelines for the management of diabetes and heart disease in the south Asian population. The sustained breadth and energy of Twin Epidemic’s endeavors will continue to engage world leaders in health thanks to the leadership and vision of Dr.Vijay.
Twin Epidemic have been doing exemplary work in cardiac diseases, diabetes and renal diseases all over the World, particularly in the developing countries like India, Africa etc. I had the privilege to join their health camp in Ladakh which has a lot of Tibetan population with dismal health care.They have been doing excellent field work under adverse circumstances with minimal technological or financial support.
I have known Dr. Kris Vijay, professionally, more than 30 years. The last six, more personally: I was a heart patient, whose life he helped save. Over that course of time, I learned of his laudable efforts and achievements in clinical research toward the pursuit of the truth in science, in health and in medicine. I invite you to explore, to inquire, to support, and to donate your time and treasure to Twinepidemic, a nonprofit, to dramatically reduce the morbidity and mortality of diabetes and cardiovascular disease among ethnic communities – locally and worldwide.
