WHO WE ARE
Laura Manning is a Registered Dietitian in the Department of Gastroenterology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. She has spent the last 15 years at Mount Sinai, the last 10 of which have been in Gastroenterology. Though Laura has spent time in a variety of clinical settings, she found her work in diet and nutrition the most fascinating. She has a strong interest in working with people diagnosed IBD, IBS, Short Bowel Syndrome, Celiac Disease, Gastroparesis, and many other disorders of the GI tract.
While many nutritionists advise people on how to lose weight, Laura has found a niche in helping malnourished people to gain weight in the healthiest way possible. She is also passionate about helping people avoid the many pitfalls of a fast food industry. Busy lifestyles have created a boon of many prepared and processed foods, leading the population into high rates of chronic disease. Laura advises people to start taking matters into their own hands and cook nutritious, healthy food with simple steps.
Laura enjoys calling herself a “foodie.” She loves to cook, and she frequents all types of restaurants featuring all types of cuisines to better understand the diverse cultures of foods and people that make up Manhattan. She spends a portion of her time working with the press and has been featured in publications such as the Huffington Post, Fitness Magazine, Everyday Health, SheKnows.com, The Daily News, MindBodyGreen.com, among others.
Laura obtained her Bachelors in Nutrition and Masters in Public Health from Hunter College in New York City. She resides in Manhattan with her husband and two kids.
