She received an undergraduate degree from the College of the Holy Cross and a PhD from Rutgers University, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Over the last 20 years, Dr. Sysko has been involved with research and treatment of a wide range of eating and weight disorders.
