Meet the Board
Larry Mann, MD, FAAP

Larry Mann was recently appointed to the NCPeds Board of Directors. Larry has been a member of NCPeds Society for many years and now is looking forward to serving on the Board of Directors.


I am very honored and humbled both to be invited to serve on the NCPeds Board of Directors and to be part of an organization that is vital in maintaining quality Pediatric Healthcare. I hope to be an effective advocate for both children and providers”.


Larry is one of two founding partners of Jeffers, Mann and Artman Pediatrics serving the Raleigh area with five locations and thirty-three providers. He served as the Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at WakeMed and has served on the Rex Hospital Executive Committee, Key IPA Quality Assurance Committee and the WKCC Board of Directors.


Originally from West Virginia, Larry has made Raleigh his home since 1985 and raised his four children here. In the past he has enjoyed traveling with his family, skiing and playing golf. However, recently he discovered a new way to spend his “spare time” - she was born ten months ago and calls him “Papa”!!
