Hello Doctors, Doctors-To-Be!
#1 Keep Coronavirus Away: Message From Vice-Chancellor
Greetings, Dear Students!
You must be aware of the new and unfortunate epidemic that the world is struggling with today — New Coronavirus Disease COVID-19.
Since the discovery of the first case of COVID-19 in China in December 2019, this life-threatening disease has turned into a global outbreak. As of today— March 1, 2020— the COVID-19 has affected more than 83,300 of our fellow human beings, and the number is growing.
During this tough time, we all need to be extra cautious and keep an eye on our health as well as the health of people around us. As responsible residents of this one big-yet-connected world, we should also not assume that people around us are aware of COVID-19 and must make all the efforts to make them aware of the disease, its symptoms, and ways to stay protected.
Therefore, for the protection of yourself and those around you and to contribute your best in the battle against COVID-19, I sincerely request you to please go to the Coronavirus Section on the official portal of the World Health Organization. WHO’s guide to keep Coronavirus away is one of the most comprehensive and up to date. Stay aware and also make those, who are around you, aware.
COVID-19 has turned into a monster, and the least we can do to defeat this monster is that we unite together, spread awareness, take care of each other, and stay cautious ourselves.
History reminds us of the big battles that humankind has triumphed. I am confident that with time, our strong community of healthcare professionals will be able to find a solution to put an end to the Coronavirus epidemic too.
Stay Positive. Stay Safe. Stay Helpful.
AVSM, VSM, and BAR (Retd),
Former Director-General of Medical Services (IAF),
Vice-Chancellor, Lincoln American University

On February 4, we celebrated World Cancer Day and spread awareness about the causes of cancer. One of the most surprising facts about cancer is that about 1 in 6 deaths occurs due to cancer, and tobacco and alcohol use are two of the leading causes.
Are tobacco and alcohol more important than precious life? No, at any cost. So, even if you missed our campaign, it’s never too late to start for a good cause. Take a pledge today that you will never ruin your life with tobacco or alcohol and inspire others to quit these harmful substances.
#7 Featured Health Read: Are Worry, Stress, And Anxiety Same?
No, they are not. There lies a thin line of difference between worry, stress, and anxiety. As noted by The New York Times, “Worry happens in your mind, stress happens in your body, and anxiety happens in your mind and your body.”
Research has found that the majority of us are overstressed, too worried, and too anxious. However, for relief, with little techniques like writing down reasons for your worry, daily exercise, a healthy diet, and good sleep habits, you can keep your worry, stress, as well as anxiety at minimum level and study smarter and live healthier.
