Pandit and Dr. Kiran Bulusu. Dr. Kishore received his MD from Andhra University and his MPH in Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Kishore dedicated his life to the treatment of addiction as a disease rather than a social problem. He developed a treatment methodology known as the “Massachusetts Model”, which will outlive him as one of the first outpatient models of addiction treatment. His efforts to help others will be widely remembered as he treated over 200,000 patients in the New England area.
