I am an NHS consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for 20 years, with over 35 years of clinical experience in women’s health. I am also a Board-Certified lifestyle medicine physician.

As College Tutor and Training Programme Director for Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the London Deanery for several years, I developed my passion for public and medical education. 

As the years went by, I realised that I was treating women after the disease process had started, and that prevention was really the key. I started to see the role nutrition and lifestyle had at every stage in a woman’s life, including pregnancy and menopause. This led me to set up a voluntary project, Women for Women’s Health in 2014, to educate and empower women to make informed health choices.

I strongly support the work of Nutritank, set up by forward thinking medical students to bring the best educational resources in nutrition and lifestyle to the medical world. During my training, I was not taught any aspect of nutrition or its role in enhancing women’s health. I passionately believe this knowledge should be available to people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Through social media (@drnitubajekal), information leaflets on my website (www.nitubajekal.com ), lectures and workshops, I provide reliable up-to-date women’s health and lifestyle information for the general public, doctors, workplaces and schools. Young people especially are at the right stage where making small positive changes can have a tremendous impact on their current and future health
