Shamini Jain

She is the Founder and CEO of the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI), a collaborative accelerator that connects scientists, health practitioners, educators and artists to help lead humanity to heal ourselves.

She has published extensively in the areas of psychoneuroimmunology, healing and well-being, and has received numerous awards from scientific societies for her clinical research, which has also been featured in major news outlets including TIME and CNN.
