Daisy M. Salort Discusses the Importance of Patient Education in Dietetics with Cambridge Who’s Who

For those with diabetes or kidney disease much more is required to control symptoms. We don’t often think about the role that food plays in our health. But for Cambridge Whos Who member Daisy M. Salort, food and nutrition is all she thinks about for the health of her patients—something she has been doing for over 48 years. On July 23rd, 2008, she joined the staff of Montefiore Medical Center’s North Division when the institution took over Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center. She serves as the facility’s expert dietitian on diabetes and dialysis. “The function of a dietitian,” Ms. Salort noted, “is to nutritionally assess patients—assess [their] hydration status, metabolic status and chemical status, and then implement education and follow up.” In addition to her work at Montefiore, Ms. Salort acts as a home consultant nutritionist for various programs. “The most important thing that I teach patients is self-management: to know about the disease and [understand] how to control it.” Committed to the health of her patients, Ms. Salort feels that her years of hard work have paid off in volumes, both in her professional life and in the lives of her patients. To contact Ms. Salort via email: or phone: (718) 920-9041.
