Two books on diabetes written by endocrinologist Dr Shahjada Selim are now available at the month-long Amar Ekushey Book Fair.
The two books titled "Diabetes Er Opar Nojor Rakhun, Nijeke Rakkha Karun" (Watch on Diabetes, Save Yourself) and "Gorvokalin Diabetes O Thyroid Hormone-janito Samasya O Karonio" (Diabetes during pregnancy, thyroid Hormone Related Disorders and Doings) were published by "Anindya" publishing house.
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Kamrul Hasan Khan attended the cover unveiling ceremony of the books as the chief guest on the premises of the book fair at Suhrawardy Udyan here on Wednesday.
"Book on medical science is rarely written in Bengali language. The two books written in Bengali will be helpful for the patients and others to be conscious about the disease," Khan said.
The VC said Dr Selim is one of the promising physicians of the country, who is also very popular among patients.
Dr Selim is an assistant professor at Endocrinology Department at BSMMU. -BSS
