Worthy of her title, Dr, Nisha has been driving to various locations in Kuala Lumpur and Seremban, delivering essentials like rice, cooking oil, and milk to the underprivileged community and low-income groups whose earnings have been affected by the pandemic.

“I was taught to give more than to receive…especially to the less fortunate. My parents are my biggest inspiration. I still remember the times when I was little girl, my dad used to drop us at villages to distribute groceries to the underprivileged,” said Dr. Nisha.

“During this crisis, my colleagues have made heartbreaking sacrifices to save lives, by working day and night, staying away from their loved ones to deliver their care to those who are affected. As a doctor, I want everyone to be vigilant and to stay home during this pandemic as we are working hard to eradicate COVID-19,” added Dr. Nisha.

2019 has been an Incredible year for sure. Here goes the best things that I’ve gained and achieved in 2019 ❤ 1. Miss world Malaysia 2019 . Won ‘ Beauty with a purpose’ award and placed Top 6. Growing up studious and nerd, Never in my wildest dreams I thought I’ll be going that far placing myself on the stage before thousands, and competing with the most exceptional beautiful women across Malaysia 😋 2. Successfully finished Housemanship , all those experinces are life worthy, from 24h shift to 36h shift , I found how precious time can be for one , enormous struggles, pain, sweat and tears now I hold a licence to treat patients- On the side note, there’s a specialist from Australia once said if you could finish your housemanship in Malaysia you could survive anywhere in the world! 😂 3. Organized few Health talks and campaigns/charities with my own effort , something that I’d cherish as an everlasting memory because not easy to balance as a houseman and being a part of dream social services. The most memorable one of all is I was called by ‘Dignity Childrens Home’ to deliver a talk, met many children from different walks of life and what made me amazed is how stronger they have grown despite struggles life had put them through. Hearty thanks for some helping hands around me for making this happen 😘 4. More family time ! this is what I always wanted since I left home and joined my medical school as young as 17, for the past 10 year I’ve been away from my loved ones, And I wish for more family time in years to come ( My top most new year resolution) Looking forward to a blessing 2020. Happy new year everyone ☺

The risk factor of cervical cancer is Human papillomavirus infection (HPV) causes more than 90% , other risk factors include smoking, multiple sexual partners, having exposed to sex at younger age, and consumption of birth control pills. In early stage of cancer, patients will be symptom free. Towards the progression of the disease symptoms such as Vaginal bleeding, contact bleeding after sexual intercourse and dyspareunia (moderate pain during sexual intercourse) may be present Pap smear is cervical screening used to detect potentially precancerous and cancerous cells in the cervix. Substantially every woman ages 21 to 65 , must undergo pap smeartesting every three years. HPV vaccine is routinely recommended for girls and boys ages 11 or 12, which targets on certain types of HPV strains. I would like to take this opportunity to show my deepest gratitute to the frontliners who are working hard for the Health of the nation!
