Hello team HIFA,

My name is Deesha Ghorpade, I belong to Pune, a city from the western part of India. I work in an organisation called as the Chest Research Foundation, an organization that focuses majorly on research, education and advocacy.

I am a PhD student at the organization under the guidance of Dr. Sundeep Salvi, currently working on the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) data as well as Developing of a COPD screening tool for the use of community health workers for early screening of COPD and referral.
