Our goal is to present all modalities related to health and wellness so people can learn and make educated decisions about their health.”
Anu Chitrapu, a senior vice president and executive at Bank of America who holds an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management and leads the workshops and at the Expo, said the annual Health Expo has become an event that the community looks forward to.
“This year the Expo is bigger and better than ever before. The lineup of speakers and the range of topics covered is phenomenal,” said Chitrapu. “Just talking briefly to our workshop speakers has opened my mind to a whole new world. Come prepared to exercise, learn to cook healthy, watch Kathak yoga, hear some exotic music, learn about several alternate forms of medicine… in short, come prepared to be immersed in a day of health that will change your life!”
