In India, medical blogs are not so popular. We do not have very many medical blogs by top doctors. While it should be a priority for people to be aware of their health yet, there is a huge lacuna in terms of accessing right information and creating awareness. People collate information from Google and try to understand a medical condition or problem. Blogging has been around for a decade or more now yet, we do not have anything interesting or specific on medicine in India. Given this backdrop, GOQii which already has a huge repository of blogs on health, nutrition, fitness, healthy recipes etc will now complete the circle with Medical blogs written by the GOQii doctors. GOQii Doctors are lifestyle doctors who believe in prescribing a healthy lifestyle and largely guide one towards forming healthy habits. These blogs will tackle the most frequently asked questions, break various myths that people have with regard to a medical condition or medicines etc and also answer the very pertinent questions in a very lucid and simple language.
