Indian-Australian physician scientist Dr Manasi Murthy Mittinty awarded Hind Rattan 2024

A childhood fire accident left Dr Mittinty with chronic pain that motivated her to get into medicine with a focus in pain management.  

Dr Manasi Murthy Mittinty, a physician-scientist at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia, has been awarded the “Hind Rattan – Jewel of India – 2024” award at the 75th Indian Republic Day in Delhi, India.

This award given by the NRI Welfare Society of India celebrates non-resident Indians living overseas who are holding the “flag of India high” thanks to their achievements.

Dr Mittinty has been recognized for her leadership in advancing mental health equity, particularly for people with chronic pain, culturally diverse communities, and First Nations people in Australia.

She told The Australia Today:

“The acknowledgement from the Indian diaspora for upholding the flag of India high is a source of immense pride for me. I am humbled by this recognition, and it brings new energy to my work.”

Dr Mittinty is an emerging international expert in the field of pain medicine with special interest in achieving mental health equity for all Australians by developing individualized patient care programs.

In 2018, Dr Mittinty received  the Australian Government Funded Endeavour Postdoctoral fellowship and in 2022 was chosen as the winner of the National Emerging Leader in Health Award for her work in chronic pain and mental health.

In 2023, she graduated from the prestigious Harvard Medical School’s (HMS) Global Clinical Scholar Research Training (GCSRT) program.

Dr Mittinty worked as Lecturer at the University of Sydney (2019-2023) where she coordinated the specialised pain medicine pathway units in the Master of Medicine program, Epidemiology of Pain and facilitated the Self-management of Pain, a continued Professional development course.

A childhood fire accident left Dr Mittinty with chronic pain that motivated her to get into medicine with a focus in pain management.  

“Everyone experiences pain very differently. And most of the time, it’s not the pain that challenges them, but it is the associated distress, disability and perception from others in the world.”

She adds:

“I wanted to take away the focus from telling patients how we could treat them and rather create programs that would not only help them overcome pain but would also empower them to take on all the mental health challenges that come with it.”

Dr Mittinty’s research stretches across multiple disciplines and has the potential for impressive impact outside of Australia and across the world—it’s a lofty goal, and she’s been developing her skills and knowledge in order to accomplish it.  

NRI Welfare Society of India recognizes the work, contributions and achievements of NRIs who have made a respected place for themselves outside and are also contributing in strengthening India’s economy and culture.

The Hind Rattan award ceremony is attended by the members of the Indian Prime Minister’s Office, Government officials, Judges and advocates of the Supreme Court of India, international diplomats, and celebrities.
