2017 Gala Honoree

Face-to-Face is thrilled to honor Dr. Natasha (Anu) Anushri Anandaraja with The Victory Garden Impact Award at this year’s Face-to-Face Victories-In-The Garden Gala.

Anu is the founder of Te Karanga and the lead for the Te Karanga Journeys. She was born in New Zealand and earned her medical degree at the University of Auckland. She worked for international non-governmental organizations on child health and disaster relief in India before coming to New York City, where she trained in Pediatrics, Global Health and Public Health at Mount Sinai Medical Center.

Anu went on to train in Tropical and Travel Medicine at Universidad Cayetano Heredia in Peru, to work with the NYC Department of Health on Pediatric Tuberculosis, and then to become the Director of Education for the Arnhold Institute for Global Health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. During her 8 years in this role, Anu managed international training programs for Mount Sinai medical students, public health students and doctors.

Since 1995, Anu has worked in Sri Lanka, Haiti, Mozambique, Uganda, Colombia and India on maternal and child health, nutrition and disaster relief projects, and has more than a decade of experience in creating and leading experiential educational programs across the globe.
