Dr. Harding is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. A board-certified psychiatrist, she is the author of The Rabbit Effect: Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier with the Groundbreaking Science of Kindness. She specializes in the interplay between mental and physical health and her goal is to care for every patient with a comprehensive, holistic approach.

In her work as a physician, writer, and educator, Dr. Harding explores the science of kindness and the social dimensions of health. These hidden factors affect the body in profound ways, altering metabolism, the immune system, mental health, and illness. She combines the latest biomedical advances with big-picture public health research to help people live well, even with chronic disease.
