He was delivering an online invited talk of the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka on ‘Contribution of Unani Medicine to Health Care Challenges of 21st Century’.

In the guest lecture, he discussed the role of safe and effective Unani therapies in the management of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) and in disease prevention and health promotion.
Dr Farooq spoke about how even the post-modern approach in medicine is now looking into the age-old holistic Unani Medicine principles.
