"We are thrilled by the momentum we are gaining", said Dr. Sreedhar Potarazu, MD, MBA, Founder and Chairman of GoodChime! "to bring together an important convergence of experience in Big Health Data and the digital medium to drive constant consistent engagement in health".

"The incidence of diabetes, hypertension and obesity is exploding in India, and there is an urgent need to engage the population more proactively to manage their health. We feel the partnership between GoodChime and the Yuvraj Singh Centre of Excellence addresses this urgent need."

Yuvraj Singh said: "I am delighted to be working with Dr. Sreedhar and GoodChime! in creating a disruptive force to improving India's health. I am thankful to Dr. Sreedhar for supporting YSCE and I am sure this support and sponsorship will help many budding cricketers," said Yuvraj Singh.
