About Vivek Baliga

 Professional Summary:     

 

Dr. Vivek Baliga dedicates a great deal of time and energy to giving back to his community. He and his friends have raised £1,000 for Britain’s National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society, which supports individuals with several types of arthritis, health care workers interested in rheumatoid arthritis, and families and friends of people with arthritis. After graduating from medical school in Mangalore, India, Dr. Vivek Baliga also worked with a team of local doctors to teach children and schoolteachers about malaria and how to prevent it from spreading. More recently, he has become a monthly contributor to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity in London.

Dr. Baliga does not limit his charitable interests to the medical field, however. He is also a strong supporter of The Desk and Chair Foundation, which provides education, clean water, and other services to communities in Tanzania. Dr. Vivek Baliga has raised money for the foundation for several years in a row through participating in charity runs located across the United Kingdom. A picture of him and several other medical professionals at the Foundation’s 2006 run in Edinburgh is posted prominently on its website’s sponsorship page, along with the results of their fundraising.

Presently enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Leeds, Dr. Vivek Baliga dedicates himself academically to performing cardiovascular research. He has conducted several studies on topics ranging from tests for patients suffering from chronic heart failure to patient response to diagnoses of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. His writings have been featured in publications including Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology; Experimental Physiology; Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise; and Prescriber, the Journal of Prescribing and Medicines Management. Dr. Vivek Baliga is a member of both the Royal College of Physicians and the European Association of Echocardiography, and he holds an accreditation from the British Society of Echocardiography.
