  • Kelsey M. Mangano

    PhD, RD

Kelsey M. Mangano, PhD, RD, is Assistant Professor and Director of the Nutritional Sciences Program in the Department of Biomedical and Nutritional Sciences at UMass Lowell. She is a member of the Center for Population Health at UMass Lowell. Dr. Mangano also holds an Adjunct Faculty appointment at the Institute for Aging Research, Hebrew SeniorLife, Harvard Medical School affiliate. Dr. Mangano's research interests include exploring the relation between nutritional factors and musculoskeletal health among aging adults. Current projects focus on: 1) Protein intake patterns and how they are differentially associated with bone and muscle health; 2) The anti-inflammatory diet and its association with bone health, muscle mass, strength and function; 3) Exploring whether dietary patterns of Caribbean Latino adults predict high levels of inflammation and whether the composition of their microbiome mediates this association. Future research directions include developing dietary interventions to treat aging dysbiosis (altered microbiome) to reduce musculoskeletal losses via anti-inflammatory pathways.


Dr. Mangano will address the following topics :

  • Dairy Products and Bone health
  • Role of Key Dairy Specific Nutrients on Bone Health
  • Gut-Bone Axis


At the end of this webinar, the learner will be able to :

  • Identify the updated roles of dairy products on bone mass in childhood/adolescence and on prevenion of osteoporosis and fractures in older adults
  • Describe recent research related to dairy nutrients and their interactions on bone health outcomes
  • Gain new knowledge in the emerging area of the “ Gut-Bone Axis ” and the role of the gut microbiome on bone health
