Ensuring a Better Quality of Life with Dr. Andrew Manganaro & Life Line Screening

Dr. Andrew Manganaro was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He attended college and graduated with honors after studying Philosophy and Biology. He went on to attend New York University School of Medicine, where he received his Doctorate. Dr. Manganaro did his residency at New York University/Bellevue Hospital Medical Center and UCLA School of Medicine, respectively. He spent the next 35 years as a surgeon, and once he retired he accepted the position of Chief Medical Officer at Life Line Screening. He got the idea for Life Line Screening by watching his patients come in with internal bleeding and injuries that were preventable if they had known about them before they became big problems. Dr. Mangarnaro believes in assessing your failures to see what you did wrong and learn from them, keep up with scientific research, so you know what is working and what isn’t working, and never stop looking for answers.

Sanjay Shah Dedicates Autism Rocks To Autism Victims

Autism Rocks is a traveling festival that puts on shows featuring some of the most renowned entertainers. It has hosted events in cities all over the world from Madrid to New Delhi, and all funds received from ticket purchases go towards research and cures for autism. Millionaire entrepreneur Sanjay Shah, the founder of Solo Capital is the man who started up Autism Rocks, and he did so because the disease is something he knows about. His young son Nikhil has had to work through the struggles of autism, but Sanjay hopes that this festival, recently hosted in his home city Dubai, will help others affected by the disease, and maybe one day help find a cure for it.

Sanjay Shah has always had an interest in health and medicine, and at one point he was going to be a doctor. But when medical school fell through, he decided to take up business and accounting instead. He became certified and was hired by several big banks like Morgan Stanley and Citibank, and he was very proficient at his job, but he still felt he was not reaching the goals of what he really wanted to do with his life.

Things took a turn for the worse for Shah when he lost his job in 2009 because of the financial crash. He was nearly broke, but he had a little money to get a small room in a corner outlet of a London building. It was there that he started up Solo Capital, an investment boutique company that managed clients funds and gave sound investment advice. He was able to grow the company in a few years from just a small-dollar startup, to a million-dollar enterprise. Shah did so well with the business that he was able to let others manage it while he took time off to spend with his family. Shah is considered retired today and lives in Dubai, the UAE’s largest city.
