I have led a blessed life, but I have also worked hard and overcome significant barriers including sexism, racism, being an immigrant and losing her mother at an early age.
New York City, New York (PRWEB) May 11, 2013
Patients Medical, a leading integrative medical center in New York, announces a book release party on Wednesday, May 15th at 6:30pm to celebrate Dr. Marcia A. Harris’ latest book, “reasons to believe”. The party will be held at Patients Medical offices with readings by the author, signings and photo opportunities. “reasons to believe” is a thrilling memoir about the Jamaican-born doctor’s life from birth to present and empowers young women, especially those new to this country, to excel and to connect with their faith as a pathway to success.
“I hope that everyone reads my book and is inspired by the events that have unfolded in my life,” explains Dr. Harris. “I have led a blessed life, but I have also worked hard and overcome significant barriers including sexism, racism, being an immigrant and losing her mother at an early age.”
Apart from her struggles, Dr. Harris reveals amazing stories about her experiences with her Gynecology and Obstetrics patients including those who had miraculous birth stories, harrowing near-fatal conditions caught in the nick of time, surgeries that were proclaimed impossible then made possible by the doctor and more. Throughout each story, she weaves the theme of faith and trust in the patient’s innate ability to give the doctor vital clues…as long as the doctor listens.
“We are very happy to finally read about Dr. Harris and her many years in practice before joining Patients Medical,” says Medical Director, Dr. Rashmi Gulati. “After reading this, I really know that what she says about fibroids and obstetrics is wrought out of years of hands-on experience. And we also find out why she chose integrative medicine after years of conventional medicine.”
Dr. Harris graduated with a degree in Chemistry from Pace College, then attended Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons on the Rudin Scholarship, where she earned her MD degree. She completed her internship in Internal Medicine at Harlem Hospital Center and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the New York Hospital, Weill Cornell. She is certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and in Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Replacement Therapy.
