Hana Grobel, M.D., Fellow, Integrative Medicine for Academic Year 2013-2014

Hana Grobel, MD Mount Sinai School of Medicine; Hana has always been fascinated by the relationship between Eastern and Western cultures, as the daughter of a Japanese mother and American father. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she moved to the East Coast to attend Amherst College, where she majored in psychology. Intrigued by the mind/body connection, she spent a year in Japan to study and practice Zen meditation, learn about nutrition and health, and teach English. She returned to the U.S. for medical school in New York City where she continued to cultivate her interest in different healing modalities by founding an Integrative Medicine interest group, and spent much of her time learning about the art of healing. Hana is very excited to return to California and hopes to one day integrate her passion for Eastern and Western medicine into her practice as a physician. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, cooking (and eating!), meditating, running, yoga, and playing the piano and Japanese taiko drums.
