But I also wanted to take my life to the next level, and both learn everything I could about mind-body medicine and be part of the larger conversation about it. Doing the work to achieve the PhD and then having that credential will be very important at the next stage for me. I was so happy to find Saybrook, and find the program in Mind-Body Medicine. I have been looking for something like this for a long time, but wanted a program that was fully accredited, rigorous, and serious. Saybrook answers all of those needs and challenges me to become my best self. And we have the most gifted and amazing people, professors, and students here!”
