Nora Hanke, MB, ChB

Food for Life Instructor

Dr. Hanke is a board-certified pediatrician who is following her passion: harnessing the power of good nutrition to treat and prevent physical disorders by teaching plant-based nutrition. Dr. Hanke adopted a vegetarian diet in childhood and trained in medicine in New Zealand. She won the top prizes for pediatric medicine in her class and became a general pediatrician because she believes the body's functioning needs to be considered as a whole. She would like to assist others to start a whole-foods, plant-based diet for prevention and treatment of lifestyle related disorders such as overweight, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, prediabetes, and cancer. She has been practicing Massachusetts licensed physician since 1998 and has been a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics since 1996.
