In love with life – Dr. Dina Shrestha

For Dr. Dina Shrestha, life’s one big adventure. She lived many of her formative years – 22 in all – away from Nepal; first for school and college in India and then for her Masters degree in China followed by trainings in UK and Norway. An expert in the field of hormone-related diseases, Dina has been a practicing endocrinology for the past 14 years. As we talk to Dr Dina, we discover that beneath the medical professional lies a woman of multiple interests that especially include travelling, nature, hiking and trekking. Affable, kind and deeply appreciative of life, in this edition the charismatic doctor talks about what makes her life beautiful.
