Making a world of difference
Supermom, paediatrician, researcher – Professor (Dr) Monica Lakhanpaul shows how it's all possible through dedication, hard work and passion.
It is said that you can do two things at once, but you cannot focus effectively on both at the same time. The saying does not hold much weight if you are Professor (Dr) Monica Lakhanpaul -Professor of Integrated Community Child Health at the Institute of Child Health, as well as being an Honorary Consultant Community Paediatrician, Whittington Health (working in one of the most deprived boroughs in London). She lives a busy life juggling roles between being a wife and mum, doctor and professor. “If you have passion for what you do, you find time,” laughs Dr Lakhanpaul.
