As we approach Passover, we are excited to enter into our second unit of our adult engagement partnership series with Rose Medical Center. This unit focuses on the body and explores the link between physical health and spirituality. On Passover, we are commanded to rid ourselves of chametz—leavened bread. Our tradition has often understood chametz to also refer to feeling bloated and heavy with our physical selves. Through speakers and services, we will question and explore how our physical health affects our spiritual selves.
Vijay Subbarao, MD, FACC, grew up in India and attended the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences. He completed his residency and fellowship at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas in 2006. At UTMB, he was named the Best Resident in Internal Medicine. Dr. Subbarao's major medical interest is in providing quality and compassionate patient care, and he is a strong supporter of evidence-based medicine. In 2017, Dr. Subbarao was named Top Cardiovascular Disease Top Doctor by 5280 Magazine for the 10th year in a row. Outside of his busy office at Rose Medical Center, Dr. Subbarao can be found reading a book or taking photographs. If you can't find him at all, chances are he's out riding his bicycle or traveling and having a great adventure.
