Staff Spotlight – Lauren Kanner, MD

Dr. Kanner is Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes.

I started working at UIHC in August 2018. This was my only position here.

I have a 21 month old son, Noah, and have been married to my husband for almost 7 years. We also have a one-eyed orange tabby cat, Casey, who is 9 years old.

Nowadays, I spend most of my freetime outside with my family taking advantage of Iowa City’s great playgrounds and becoming a master bubble blower. I also enjoy gardening in my vegetable garden, reading memoirs, historical fiction and young adult lit and singing, although I have not found a choir in Iowa City yet.

Most fascinating place I have visited would be the Costa Rican jungle because of the awesomeness of being surrounded by the quiet of the nature and wildlife there but the most fascinating place I have ever lived is tied for Copenhagen and New York City because of the opportunities for experiences there and the people watching.

Favorite meal is sushi or my mom’s chicken enchiladas with mole.

Favorite book: Falling Leaves; Favorite movie: Whale Rider.

Fun fact: I used to ballroom dance and know how to lead and follow in multiple styles. I was classically trained for voice in high school and college.
