  • We were pleased to welcome Anusha back again this year as a speaker at our annual Cigna Women in Leadership Summit, where we hosted 100 female leaders in the healthcare industry. Anusha spoke to attendees about her expertise in the field of meditation and mindfulness. She shared the science behind meditation, why it is beneficial and how it allows people to better cope with challenges they face every day. Her message aligned with Cigna’s mission to improve the health, wellbeing and sense of security of the people we serve. Thanks to her presentation, attendees were able to take away tangible tools to use in their work and personal lives. Anusha has done a great job sharing an important wellness message, and we are lucky to have her speak with us each year.

  • Anusha is one of the most dynamic speakers we have had present at our annual orthopedic Nursing Symposium. She spoke on Anxiety eduction Techniques for the orthopedic Nurse and Their patients . The participants raved about her lecture and her willingness to share her expertise in mindfulness. Anusha led the attendees through a mindful breathing exercise that captured the essence of her guidance, support and coaching that anyone in the healthcare industry could benefit from both professionals and patients . The audience was inspired to continue practicing mindfulness and focusing on the breath to help control stressors and as a result feel better-equipped to teach patients these techniues to help reduce their anxiety. We highly recommend Anusha for any upcoming educational event to add a dimension to the learning experience that the participants truly appreciate and walk away with some very useful techniques

  • The WOW event that Anusha spoke at for our women’s group back in March was wonderful, informative and educational. ur clients all walked away from her presentation with new tools to help them navigate through their stressful days. earning that there are other ways to cope and deal with the stress of our daily lives was eye-opening to the women in our group, and I know that many of them including myself have added mindful meditation to their daily routine.

  • Anusha is a thought leader on the science of mindfulness and meditation and speaks around the country on the benefits of these practices for general wellness, as well as for cancer risk reduction and survivorship. Anusha makes the science and practice of mindfulness and meditation accessible to all. She works closely with me on programs focused on mindfulness and meditation for those patients battling with breast cancer, or those who are at a high risk of developing breast cancer. She has a wonderful attitude and is a very inspirational speaker.
