Anoop Kumar, MD, MM is a Board-Certified, practicing emergency physician. He has a Master's degree in Management with a focus in Health Leadership.
As a child, Anoop was surrounded by the teachings of philosophy. He began to see that life could be lived from two perspectives - as a character in a story, and as something ineffable, beyond all stories. The two perspectives confused him. It took a few decades to clarify and integrate them, a process that continues today.
Informed by this process, Anoop came to recognize a key emergency that has not been formally diagnosed in our society: We have forgotten that a human being is much more than a human body. The implications of this forgetfulness are seen in every aspect of life, from personal relationships to healthcare to public policy.
Anoop sees science, philosophy, and spirituality as tools that can reveal unseen aspects of who we are. The result? We experience ourselves and our world more clearly, fully, and intimately.
