Don't Wait Till New Year’s to Make a Positive Change in Your Life

Read our interview with alumna Dr. Mimi Guarneri (WSC ’81) and see how you can improve your life starting today, by practicing integrative health.
1. What did you study at NYU?
I had a large interest in literature at NYU, and I actually majored in English, but I also did all my pre-med classes. I was one of those hybrid majors that majored in literature instead of science, and I really loved the English literature foundational work I did at NYU, which was helpful when I wrote my first book, The Heart Speaks: A Cardiologist Reveals the Secret Language of Healing. I always knew I would go to medical school, but I didn’t want my humanities background to be left out, and I feel very rounded as a result of taking those classes. And medical schools today like students to be well-rounded and are understanding of different educational backgrounds.
