Dr Poorna Menon

Health & Wellness Consultant

In my previous career, my own health suffered badly and there were no resources provided to me by my company for recovering or receiving support. I felt this type of professional neglect needed to change from within individual industries themselves and I hence want to be able to contribute towards supporting the health of busy workers in whichever industry they might be in.

The reality is that employees typically know they can see a doctor for an issue, but internal support provided from within the industry creates more accessible care and reduces the stigma associated with seeking support for issues such as mental health, for example.

My passion for partnering with Transworld Wellness thereby stems from recognising the immense importance of taking care of the health & wellness of all employees within an organisation. The seafaring industry, in particular, is an industry that has inherent occupational challenges. Supporting the health and & wellness of seafarers is hence a very important task and I am hence excited to be part of this wonderful initiative by Transworld Wellness.
