WHEREAS, DR. PARIKSITH SINGH was also recognized for his excellent healthcare to the community, his display of concern for the well-being of others beyond his day-to-day responsibilities, for putting his patients first, as well as remembering something personal, not health related, about every one of his patients; and

WHEREAS, DR. PARIKSITH SINGH started the Auroveda Operating Foundation, which includes an outreach center and community garden; and WHEREAS, the Auro Community Garden is a sustainable garden using natural growing methods, free of harmful insecticides and other chemicals. The garden supplies its members the land, seed, compost, and materials used to help the garden grow, and holds regular seminars and workshops to educate its members and the public about sound gardening practices, nutrition and caring for the environment; and WHEREAS, DR. PARIKSITH SINGH established the Access Enrichment Center for the benefit of his patients. The Access Enrichment Center not only provides educational material, but also recreational activities, support groups, lectures and presentations; and

WHEREAS, DR. PARIKSITH SINGH supports various local non-profit organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, People Helping People, Disabled American Veterans, Crescent Community Clinic, neighborhood schools and many indigents in the community…”

In response to the resolution Dr. Singh commented, “I came here 22 years ago and was allowed to grow and thrive. This is something beautiful about our country.  It allows people to move from other countries and succeed. I don’t know of any other country, any other community that will allow this…”

Dr. Singh thanked and recognized his wife and partner Dr. Scunziano-Singh remarking, “Without her this would not have happened.”

He continued, “What we have tried to do over the last few years is do things locally.  Developed our own software, created our own HMO… patient centered medical homes. All this can be done here.  We don’t need to go to Silicon Valley. We don’t have to run to New York. All this talent development, skill development we can do here. We have the smarts… we just have to believe in ourselves. Each community can have its own resources…”  

Dr. Singh emphasized the importance of educating our children through agricultural pursuits.  “We need things for our children to educate them- to have them feel the soil again. Go to the gardens- go and grow plants- not spend time on the x boxes and the Wiis.  This is something we have to develop for our own community,” he said.

Prominent Hernando County resident Nicholas Morana accompanied Dr. Singh for the presentation.  Morana, Dr. Singh’s friend of 21 years remarked, “I could not be prouder of Dr. Singh and what he has done for our community. He could have taken his business anywhere, but he picked Hernando County, giving us so much more than just great healthcare.”
