Sujata Kelkar Shetty is the published author of 99 not out! Your Guide to a long and healthy life. She wrote a mind- body health column for Mint Business Newspaper for many years. She is also an ICF certified life coach and a US trained biological scientist with publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Dr Shetty’s journey into mind-body health began when she studied how stress suppresses the immune system during her post doctoral training at the NICHD in the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. Her columns in the Mint were written to help increase public awareness of the connection between lifestyle choices and physical and mental health. She is passionate about sharing the research evidence that shows how healthful behaviours can protect us from disease while increasing our life span. She does this through her book, talks, and carefully curated wellbeing workshops.

Dr. Shetty has a Bachelor’s degree in Genetics from University of Wisconsin- Madison, a PhD in Toxicology from the University of Kentucky-Lexington and completed her coach training at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).
