Joan Borysenko is a pioneer in integrative medicine and a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. Joan effectively conveys the importance of work-life balance, and how to acheive it. Dr. Borysenko’s work has been foundational in an international healthcare revolution that recognizes the role of meaning, and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing. Eloquent and inspiring in settings that range from hospitals to hospices, from theaters to conference venues, and from boardrooms to houses of worship, Joan Borysenko is a credible bridge between faith and reason. Dr. Borysenko’s brilliance, humor and authenticity—in combination with the latest research—make her a compelling and inspiring speaker and writer.After graduating magna cum laude from Bryn Mawr College in 1967, Dr. Borysenko earned her doctorate in Medical Sciences from the Harvard Medical School, where she completed post-doctoral training in cancer cell biology. Joan Borysenko’s first faculty position was at the Tufts University College of Medicine in Boston. But after the death of her father from cancer, Dr. Borysenko became more interested in the person with the illness than in the disease itself, and returned to Harvard Medical School to complete a second postdoctoral fellowship; this time in the new field of Behavioral Medicine. Under the tutelage of Herbert Benson, M.D., who first identified the relaxation response and brought meditation into medicine, Joan Borysenko was awarded a Medical Foundation Fellowship and completed her third post-doctoral fellowship in psychoneuroimmunology.
