Heart of Medicine: When Did Cardiovascular Disease Become An Occupational Health Hazard?

On the latest episode of Heart of Medicine, occupational health physician Dr Abed Onn joins consultant cardiologist Dr Kannan Pasamanickam to dive into the importance of occupational health and safety, and how cardiovascular disease intersects with the workplace today. With the rise of cardiovascular disease among working-age adults, we explore work-related CVD risk factors, and how organisations can create a more conducive environment for healthy lifestyle practices.


Look out for more of Dr Kannan and Dr Abed’s reflections on changing healthcare trends, in ‘Beyond The White Coat’, along with writings from 20 other veteran medical professionals who graduated from the class of 1973/78, from the Faculty of Medicine, University Malaya. Updates will be posted here.
