The department would like to congratulate Dr Fathhullah Azmie for passing his DrPH VIVA VOCE with the title “Kidney Health Status among Adolescents in Peninsular Malaysia: A mixed-method study”. This study utilised some information from the MyHeART study (an adolescent cohort) and qualitative work.
He has spoken very eloquently and was able to address all the questions raised by the examiners (from Harvard University, University of Malaya)and also our Deputy Dean, Professor Dr Shahrul Bahiyah. He is supervised by Professor Dr Hazreen Abd Majid, Associate Professor Dr Wan Hafiz Wan Md Adnan (Department of Medicine), and Dr Maslinor Ismail.
When we asked him how he described his DrPH journey at UM; “The road to my DrPH will be one of the most eventful moments of my life because it has presented me with challenges in every angle including the lives of those closest to me. It requires hard work and perseverance. Yet, it has shaped me into a more thoughtful, virtuous and decisive person overall”.
We would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours. Congratulations Dr Fathhullah Azmie Nawawi!
