She moved to Toronto in 2008 to complete a Master’s Degree in Health Sciences in Family and Community Medicine with a concentration in global health at the Dalla Lana School of Public health. In 2010 Dr. Lakhoo started an academic family practice at St. Michael’s Hospital. During her 10 years at St. Michael’s Hospital she treated many individuals facing poverty, marginalization, significant mental health challenges and addiction.
After recovering from postpartum depression herself, Dr. Lakhoo decided that it was time to change directions in her career as she first hand realized the importance of holistic care and healthier lifestyle choices to help support her own recovery. She recently received her diploma with the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine and is passionate about empowering individuals to reach their optimal health and wellbeing through proven lifestyle changes.
