Brenda Stockdale is the Director of Behavioral Medicine at Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia (a Vantage Oncology affiliate), and a nationally recognized pioneer in the practical application of psychoneuroimmunology. Her programs are endorsed by leading specialists and have been implemented in hospitals, cancer centers and primary care practices. She has also been the National Program Director for the cancer support organization founded by best-selling author and surgeon Bernie Siegel, MD.
Stockdale has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, NPR, ABC radio and in a variety of print media, including Bottom Line Health, Good Housekeeping, ‘O’ The Oprah Magazine and Natural Health.
Her 6-week program, outlined in her recent book, You Can Beat the Odds, has been praised by Harvard scientists, physicians and epidemiologists “as a prescription, in and of itself, for maximizing one’s health” and “the health book to read this year.”
She developed a groundbreaking health psychology program for primary care settings specializing in preventive medicine, autoimmunity, and stress-related conditions. A leader in her field, she has taught, presented workshops, lectured nationally over the last fifteen years for a variety of corporate and special interest groups, authored scholarly articles and book chapters for academic texts, and co-authored an integrative medicine newsletter. She is a clinician in the field of behavioral medicine, but it is her own experience with life-altering and catastrophic illness that anchors the subject in an intimate way.
