Dr KK Aggarwal, Editor in Chief eMedinewS and IMA News in conversation with Dr Renu Saxena, Prof and Head, Dept. of Hematology, AIIMS, New Delhi
 
Dr Renu Saxena has been honored with Dr BC Roy National Award for the year 2009 under the category of Eminent Medical Teacher. 
 
Dr KK: How does it feel being conferred with one of the most prestigious awards in the medical field?
 
I feel very honored and humbled. Having spent 36 years in the field of hematology and enjoying every minute of the same, the award comes as recognition of our work. Needless to say, this gives me tremendous encouragement to continue working with the same zeal and enthusiasm.
 
Dr KK: Tell us about your journey so far.
 
I have been a medical graduate, postgraduate and faculty at AIIMS, New Delhi. I feel that training from AIIMS and the work atmosphere here in AIIMS have helped me inculcate academic, ethics and research values, in addition to patient care. My seniors and teachers at AIIMS have been my role models and have mentored me regarding approach to academics and ideal patient care. I have strived to work with sustained dedication, hard work and sincerity towards my profession. In addition, I have always enjoyed teaching and grooming budding doctors and mentoring them in building their careers.
 
Dr KK: What were the early challenges faced by you in your career? How did you manage to overcome them?
 
Some early challenges included balancing of family life with profession and the struggle to do quality work. These were overcome by my constant strive for trying to do justice in whatever work I was involved in and my husband’s support, whether it was home or profession. I thoroughly enjoyed both my roles as a hematologist and a homemaker.

Make World a better place by sustaining wildlife
 
New Delhi: June 5th 2016:  The ‘World Environment Day’ is a United Nations initiative that is commemorated every year on June 5. The United Nations facilitates worldwide awareness on environment, and this year the theme focuses on the ‘illegal trade in wildlife’ that has reached an unprecedented level of extinction. The exploitive practice is not just impacting the tigers, rhinos & elephants, but is equally a grave threat for other exotic species.
The major concern that the world is faced with is alarming increase of wildlife crime, which endangers the mega species in a greater level. Illegal animal trade has become rampant owing to shortage of equipment & facilities. The need of the hour is to reduce the accelerating rate of species extinction. It is thus crucial; that awareness is raised about ways to protect the environment in a global platform, eventually leading to save the whole essence of exotic wildlife.
