Ms Upasana Kamineni
Executive Director — Apollo Life, Vice President – Apollo Wellness,
Vice President — Apollo Philanthropy, and Editor — B Positive
A graduate from London’s Regents College, Ms Upasana Kamineni plays multiple roles to perfection. As
the Executive Director of Apollo Life — a wellness company — Ms Upasana strives to ensure that school
children and the leaders of corporate India maintain good health. The services of Apollo Life
encompass various dimensions of preventive and maintenance care. Apollo Life’s core objective is to
address the mental, emotional, physical and environmental issues that account for most chronic and
lifestyle diseases and to pre-empt their manifestation into illnesses.
Ms Upasana recently launched Apollo M.I.N.D. Line, a tele-counselling helpline service (an Apollo Life
initiative), which offers guidance and extends support to individuals of all ages in finding the right
solutions to all their emotional and psychological problems.
From the age of 15, when she began U Xchange — a service to recycle books and notebooks that were
distributed amongst poor children — Ms Upasana has moved seamlessly into her role at Apollo
Philanthropy. She is presently involved in an awareness-building campaign on cervical cancer. Her
untiring efforts are also visible in other Apollo initiatives such as SACHi (Saving A Child’s Heart
Initiative), SAHI (Society to Aid the Hearing Impaired), CURE and others that come under the Apollo
umbrella. In and out of wards, she spends a large part of her day with children who are being treated
at the Apollo Health City, Hyderabad. Her concern for society is manifest in many ways, including an
association with the Blue Cross that has also brought the cause of animals close to her heart.
Ms Upasana is also the Editor of B Positive — a wellness magazine. Touching more than 200,000 lives
every month, B Positive enlightens its readers on topics related to health, wellbeing, fitness, beauty,
diet and nutrition through articles written by doctors, specialists and other practitioners. The national
magazine has a large subscriber base, along with a presence in major bookstores across the country.
The eldest daughter of Mr Anil and Shobana Kamineni and the granddaughter of Dr Prathap C Reddy,
Founder-Chairman of Apollo Hospitals — Asia’s largest private hospitals chain — Ms Upasana’s
endeavours contribute to Apollo Hospitals’ mission of touching a billion lives in a country that needs
better healthcare facilities on a macro scale.
