New York: Dr. Jay M. Sarkar has been recognized by the World Organization for Peace (WOFP) as Ambassador for Peace, and Executive Member of WOFP Foundation for New York.
WFOP is a non-profit instituted in New York in 1991 to preserve human life on the planet. It conforms to the guidelines of the United Nations, which is the ruling parent organization, that together with its member countries shapes the destiny of humanity and advocates for human rights.
WOFP names Ambassadors for Peace periodically and these honorary ambassadors are chosen on a variety of factors.
On September 3, 2020, the WOFP Board decided to recognize Dr. Sarkar as Ambassador for Peace and Executive Member, New York, based on his work of integrating spirituality and medical science for a better way of living for humanity, and for the overall healing and wellbeing of people. He has used this approach to help his patients enjoy better lives, which is a fitting reflection of the mission of WOFP.
The World Organization for Peace is always looking for people with good intentions from various nationalities and career affiliations to represent it. “Peace is a good which is worthy of every human being and at the same time necessary to all, it does not have owners and it will only be obtained with the effort, tolerance and good predisposition of all humanity,” said the WOFP team.
The honor for Dr Sarkar is truly a reflection of his lifetime of service and contribution in the medical community and spiritual services. He has a Bachelor of Homoeopathic Medicine & Surgery degree from Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College in New Delhi, Occupational Therapy education from the Institute for the Physically Handicapped, also in New Delhi, and training in Mind Body Medicine from Harvard Medical School in Boston.
Dr. Sarkar’s professional experience has included working at Peterborough Hospital in Peterborough, UK and Hurstbourne Care Center in Louisville, KY. Dr. Sarkar owns a private practice in pain management in New York City, and provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and counselling services. He is licensed as OTR in both New York and Massachusetts and is also certified in Mind Body Medicine. His accolades include the US Congressional Achievement Award in 2009 and NYC Council Citation Recognition Award in 2014.
WOFP conducts many peace programs to foster peaceful living and deter war, terrorism, and nuclear weapons.
As Ambassador of Peace of the prestigious organization, Dr Sarkar looks forward to inspiring people with his dynamic and holistic approach. He finds that merging spirituality and medical practice, which are typically left separate, can provide a wealth of benefits to humanity, including enhancement of mental and physical health and wellbeing, which is aligned with the mission of the World Organization for Peace.
