Deepak Chopra came to the United States from India to intern at Muhlenberg Hospital in Plainfield, New Jersey in 1970, the first member of his family to come to the United States. He had left India with $8 of his own and $100 his uncle had given to him. Two years later he was followed to Muhlenberg Hospital by his younger brother Sanjiv and Sanjiv's wife, Amita. As Deepak's uncle had done for him, Deepak sent them $100 for their journey. Four decades later the Chopra brothers are among the most celebrated and respected men in the world. The impact they have made as physicians, teachers and philosophers will resonate far into the future.
Deepak Chopra has become the world renowned leader of mind-body medicine, the founder of The Chopra Center for Well Being and in 1999 was named by Time magazine, 'One of the 100 heroes and icons of the 20th century... as the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.' Sanjiv Chopra has become a Professor of Medicine at Harvard University Medical School, the Faculty Dean for Continuing Education and in 2009 was elected a Master of the American College of Physicians, a rare honor awarded to 'Only a few select individuals; citizen physicians, educational innovators, scientific thinkers and humanists and learner-teachers who inspire... and sets the standards for quality in medicine.'
