Delighted to be featured in the #IntegrativeMedicineForTheUnderserved #IM4US February 2019 newsletter! 🙏💜
IM4US: What got you interested in integrative health and the underserved?
Anu: My journey to wellness over the last 22 years as a pediatrician and the last 15 years as a mother has been focused on building resilience. Being able to bounce back from stress, helping develop neuroplasticity and nourishing intergenerational resilience feels paramount as a parent and as a physician.
What kind of work do you do with the underserved?
Anu: I have been at our SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Pediatrics office in St Louis MO for 18 years that serves an ethnically culturally socioeconomically diverse and medically underserved population
