She graduated from Boston University School of Medicine and trained at Newton-Wellesley Hospital where she also served as Chief Resident.

In this discussion Tony and Vyvyane talk about how she incorporates her skill as a writer into her patient care, the power of lifestyle intervention as a therapy for a wide variety of disorders and ailments, the effects of COVID-19 on minority communities, sick care versus health care, why being metabolically healthy improves your energy, the TOFI problem that many people of East/South-Asian descent suffer from, why having a low BMI is not necessarily a good thing, physician and COVID burnout, and how the Corona Virus is able to take root in people who are in poor metabolic health.
