SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 20, 2022-- Vistagen (Nasdaq: VTGN), a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company aiming to transform the treatment landscape for individuals living with anxiety, depression, and other central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Shawn Singh, will participate in a private executive roundtable on September 20th at the 2022 Concordia Annual Summit being held September 19-21, 2022, in New York City.

Mr. Singh will bring a unique perspective to the upcoming 2022 Concordia Annual Summit on how we can change the trajectory of mental health care, eliminate stigma surrounding anxiety and depression and expand resources for diverse communities. Earlier this year, Mr. Singh hosted a fireside chat with the U.S. Surgeon General, Vice Admiral Vivek H. Murthy, MD, MBA, at the 2022 Concordia Americas Summit on how the public and private sectors can work together to advance critical mental health care initiatives.

“I am honored to join Ms. Hawn and executive leaders in this timely and important roundtable discussing mental health and ways to improve the lives of those impacted by anxiety and depression,” said Shawn Singh, Chief Executive Officer of Vistagen. “This roundtable is another exciting opportunity to eliminate the stigma around mental health, encourage listening to those feeling alone and in need and discuss Vistagen’s efforts to transform mental health care.”
