A Harvard-educated medical scientist, Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist and New York Times bestselling author.
Considered a pioneer in integrative medicine, she is the author of more than a dozen books on the mind/body connection. One of the most popular and sought after speakers in the field of health, Borysenko is a credible bridge between faith and reason. Her ground-breaking work is a source of constant inspiration in the international healthcare revolution that recognizes the role of life's spiritual dimensions as an integral part of the healing process.
After receiving her BA from Bryn Mawr College in 1967, Borysenko earned her doctorate in Medical Sciences from Harvard Medical School, where she completed post-doctoral training in cancer cell biology.

His death inspired her to return to Harvard Medical School and complete a second postdoctoral fellowship in behavioral medicine.
