Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy attended the University of Texas School of Public Health, and then attended the University of Health Sciences Chicago Medical School. She completed her post-graduate training at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

This led her to study integrative and complementary therapies, and since then she has revolutionized the landscape of medicine.
