Dr. Lauren Jefferis, MD is board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, and has been practicing for almost 20 years. She graduated from MCP/Hahnemann School Of Medicine, Allegheny University Of Health Sciences in 2001 and specializes in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.
After successfully reversing her own autoimmune disease through dietary changes (including Whole30), she was inspired to pursue a career in functional medicine. She completed her training at the Chris Kresser Institute for Functional Medicine in 2017, and is uniquely positioned to combine her traditional and functional clinical experience to help prevent or reverse chronic disease by focusing on lifestyle choices.
Dr Jefferis has combined her medical skills, love of travel, and passion for helping people in the form of medical volunteering all over the globe. She has been to over 70 countries, and has done medical and surgical missions in 19 third world countries. As a Pediatrician, she is especially passionate about children, and has volunteered extensively doing pre-op screenings and post-op care for children with cleft lips and palates, through Operation Smile.
In her free time she loves to travel, hike, ski and do pretty much anything outdoors.
