SCU Ayurveda faculty and alumni to present at 2022 National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) Conference – Ayurveda for Family Health
WHITTIER, CA. – (April 19, 2022) — Five Southern California University of Health Sciences Ayurveda faculty and one SCU Ayurveda alumna will be presenting at the 2022 National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) Conference – Ayurveda for Family Health, from April 22-25, 2022. The 2022 NAMA conference will be a hybrid format with in-person attendees gathering in Tucson, Arizona for live events, livestreamed for remote attendees, and will also be accessible, on-demand.
NAMA represents the Ayurvedic profession in the U.S. Its mission is to preserve, protect, promote and advance the consciousness-based philosophy, knowledge, science and practice of Ayurveda for the benefit of all beings.
The 18th annual NAMA Conference will feature the following SCU Ayurveda experts who will present on a variety of Ayurvedic topics:
Dr. Anu and colleagues will also be presenting “Ayurveda and Preventative Care for Geriatric Health,” discussing sustainable approaches to promote graceful aging in daily routines, food, herbs, and physical movements that are specifically designed to empower older adults to thrive. Dr. Anu and fellow experts will advise Ayurvedic practitioners on the in-depth understanding needed of the unique challenges confronting this population, for successful intervention and treatment.
Bharathi Venkatachalpathy, BAMS, FAIHM, and colleagues, will present “Integrative Approaches to Stress and Anxiety,” discussing how stress and anxiety are catalysts for impaired functioning on both mental and physical levels. They will explore the aspects of modern-day living that factor into these conditions, and provide essential guidance on how to best support clients suffering from anxiety- and stress-related disorders and when referrals may be necessary.
The conference recordings will be available to purchase as individual videos, or as a package, from NAMA.
“My SCU colleagues and I are very honored present in front of the leading Ayurveda professionals from around the country at this national conference,” said Dr. Kizhakkeveettil. “This is an excellent opportunity to share our interesting work and to connect with peers and renowned experts as we advance the field and inspire students who are building future Ayurvedic careers.”
The SCU Ayurvedic Practitioner Certificate (Level 2) program is a continuation of the Ayurvedic Wellness Educator educational journey and personal transformation into a natural medicine healer, with deepened competencies in Ayurvedic medicine, including clinical assessments and business management. Students from all schools of Ayurveda are welcome.
