ANDRIA WHITED
RESEARCH MONITOR
NEW YORK, NY

I work at the New York State Psychiatric Institute for the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB is tasked with protecting human subjects involved in research. My role as research monitor, reviewing study charts to ensure compliance, can sometimes be viewed contentiously by researchers. However, the practices of innate love and wisdom infuse my interactions with colleagues and create an attitude of collaboration with the researchers. Additionally, as a teacher of the Innate Wisdom and Love Practices, I regularly offer these guided meditations to employees of the institute at the weekly lunch-time meditation sessions.
