Dr. Margaret Chesney is author of Women, Stress, and Heart Disease, as well as other books. She is the Director of the UC San Francisco Osher Center for Integrative Medicine and she served for five years as the first deputy director of the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM).
Among her many papers, I find these most interesting:

These final two will be the topic of another post - Dr. Lane, the lead author, is faculty at the University of Arizona and I will be seeing him speak next week.
Also online is her talk from 2010, Mind-Body Interventions: Is there Power in Positive Thinking?
