ABOUT: Dr. Finkelstein is the former Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Chief of the Departments of Medicine and Integrative Medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, New York. He then went on to pursue a more intuitive and holistic approach, as the founder and director of wellness center SunRaven. A nationally recognized author, radio show host, inspirational speaker and blogger, his concept of "Skillful Living" advises that the business of living must be developed, like a skill, with mindful, dedicated attention. You can learn more about his work at

As his University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine classmate, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, "Michael Finkelstein is an astute physician and clinician who treats the illness AND the patient," and "Dr. Finkelstein masterfully guides us through the 77 questions that connect the dots of our lives." 

 Background Info On the 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in-MPG Challenge.
From July 12th to Aug 12th, I will be driving a Prius Plug-In Hybrid as part of the 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in-MPG Challenge.  Toyota has partnered with seven prolific environmental influencers (myself included) from the tri-state area for Wave Two of the 2013 Prius Plug-In-MPG Challenge – a fun competition to help educate local communities on the benefits of electric vehicles. The winner of the challenge will receive a $2,500 donation to the charity of their choice. 

(Check out #Pluginforcharity on Facebook and Twitter.)

The charity I am competing for is New York-based Waterkeeper Alliance, a global movement of on-the-water advocates who patrol and protect over 100,000 miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.

I would like to thank Earth Day NY for facilitating my participation in the Prius Plug-in-MPG Challenge in NYC. Check out Earth Day NY on Facebook.

And, a big shout out to  Element, Times Square West for providing hotel accommodations while I am in NYC for the challenge.
