Host: Dana Corriel, MD (she’s the founder of SoMeDocs, her profile is here)

Guest: Jennifer Trachtenberg, MD – known to her patients as Dr. Jen – is a nationally renowned parenting expert, board-certified pediatrician, and has maintained a successful private practice at Carnegie Hill Pediatrics for over 20 years. She earned her medical degree in 1993 at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine and continued to complete her pediatric residency there as well. She is also an Assistant Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Jen has appeared numerous times on NBC’s TODAY show, CNN, FOX News, and contributes regularly about health and parenting topics, including child development, childhood obesity and sleep issues to Parents Magazine, Baby Chat TV, Fatherly, The Bump and RosiePope.com. She has published two parenting books, The Smart Parent’s Guide to Getting Your Kids Through Check Ups, Illness and Accidents (2010), and Good Kids, Bad Habits: The Real Age Guide to Raising Healthy Children (2007).

Dr Jen’s mission is to maximize the potential that is within every child. Her lifework as a pediatrician and parenting expert emphasizes the importance of a child’s emotional, behavioral and physical well-being while focusing on improving social and environmental factors to reduce the risk of chronic disease in adulthood.

As a pediatric authority in the care and treatment of children from birth to young adulthood, Dr. Jen is passionate about helping moms and dads be the best parents they can be, which has led her to the creation of the one of a kind video parenting guide book Pediatrician in Your Pocket. She is proud to be the expert in this essential one stop parenting series created for new parents. Her easy to follow parenting tips educate new parents with everything they want to know and may not know they are missing.

Dr. Jen has won numerous awards including Castle Connolly Exceptional Women in Medicine, Best Doctors-Metro NYC and Super Doctors to name just a few. During her free time, Dr. Jen enjoys reading, yoga, playing with her kids outdoors, nature walks, bicycling and swimming. She and her husband live just outside of New York City, where they are raising their three children.
