Biographical Information

"Joanne Rothstein studied biology at the College of New Rochelle, after an early education catching frogs in her backyard vernal pond, and upon graduation embarked on a 25 year career in medical research at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. She has authored numerous scientific papers in the field of infectious disease and presented her work at national and international meetings. A personal exploration of alternative medicine led to a career shift and a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture. She presently maintains an acupuncture practice in the Boston area where she also lectures locally on the subject of holistic medicine. She has developed and taught a course on Five Elements – a Traditional Chinese medical approach to health based on the rhythms of the natural world, as adjunct faculty for Lesley University. She has served as Editor for the Boston Mycological Club Bulletin and currently works on the executive committee for the Sacred Fire Community, an organization committed to developing deep community for the sake of personal and community well-being and balanced relationship with nature. She regularly volunteers for The Nature Connection, a local organization which brings animal and nature programs to people with limited access to the natural world."[1]
