The jury also took note of Shah’s journey in overcoming several challenges, an appetite for risk as well as Metropolis Healthcare support in India’s fight against COVID-19 in 2020.

This has been one of the key lessons in my success and has helped me reach where I am today. I am extremely delighted to have been bestowed with this award. It is an honor to receive recognition for all the efforts put in by my team at Metropolis Healthcare. The award is even more special as it acknowledges the sheer effort put in during the pandemic and all this while being a new mother.”
