Dr. Aklog, thank you so much for taking a few moments and allowing us to just dig into who you are and incidentally, your role here at EmpowHER, you are the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Board, can you explain a little bit to the audience what that entails?

Dr. Lishan Aklog:
Well yeah, I mean I think at the end of the day, you know one of the goals of EmpowHER is to assure that, you know, the information that’s available to the people who come to our site is really accurate and is really based on facts and so forth and we see the role of the Medical Advisory Board to help balance what is always and should be a very lively debate and exchange of ideas and information about various medical conditions, to balance that with the science and facts with underlying medicine and so, we spend a lot of time really reviewing material and reviewing some of that dialogue to make sure that we are not allowing this information to be spread to the participants on our site. I think that’s our primary mission.

Todd Hartley:
Yeah, that’s well said. Dr. Aklog, I am honored to be a patient of yours. I enjoy working with you and I am grateful you took the time to help us find out a little bit more about you.

Dr. Lishan Aklog:
Thank you Todd. My pleasure.
