Areas of Expertise and Interest

As a consultant and health advocate, one of Ahsan’s primary areas of focus is the improvement of mental health and well-being. Ahsan is a proponent of the idea that physical activity and good nutrition are positive contributing factors for good mental health, and in turn, good overall health.

Furthermore, Ahsan strongly believes in creating awareness, so people have quality, evidence-based information at their disposal to make well-informed health decisions. Because there is a great deal of misinformation on health and nutrition, Ahsan uses scientific evidence to ensure the correct facts are distributed.
