Laura Saslow, PhD More
Assistant Professor of Nursing
Specialty: Self-management of chronic disease, especially type 2 diabetes, and with the use of carbohydrate-restricted diets

Dr. Saslow is interested in creating and optimizing highly scalable technologically-enhanced diet and lifestyle interventions to improve health and well-being. Over the last several years she has been a principal investigator on several clinical trials, directed at type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and their management, with an emphasis on physical and psychological well-being. To address barriers for self-management, her interventions teach psychological tools, including skills to increase the experience of positive affect and mindful eating. Her long-term goal is to become a leader in creating effective, multicomponent interventions for the treatment and prevention of chronic diseases.
