Leslie Snider, MD, MPH

Leslie received her medical and psychiatry training in the northeast USA and her MPH in international health from Tulane University SPH&TM, where she directed a programme of study for 10 years in International Mental Health and Medical Anthropology. In addition to clinical work in public mental health, she has over 20 years experience in international programs for children and families affected by disasters, conflict, HIV/AIDS, poverty and exploitation, and provided training and care to humanitarian aid workers in crisis settings. She has collaborated with various UN, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and served as advisor to the US government, UNICEF, and others.  

She founded Peace in Practice in 2014 to advance mindful living, conscious leadership and harmony through global psychosocial work.  She feels peace is a daily practice.  Gratitude, kundalini yoga and meditation help her peace practice.  As do visits to her home in New Orleans -  still her favorite destination!
