Dr. Anna Yusim, a psychiatrist with private practice in New York City and author of  the book “Fulfilled, How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happy and More Meaningful Life” – (bio), joins Julie Chan for a look at the intersection of business, science, mental health, and spirituality.
