InfoA son of immigrants from India, Manan Trivedi was born and raised with his brother in Fleetwood, Berks County. His parents worked at the old Red Cheek apple juice factory. He attended public schools and graduated from Fleetwood High School. He went on to college and medical school before embarking on a Naval career that took him to the frontlines of the War in Iraq. Now, he’s a primary care physician in Reading, board certified in internal medicine.

Manan Trivedi’s passion for community service began at a very early age. As a young boy, he won a national contest for launching a healthy eating initiative. In college, he received a community service award for his work with HIV/AIDS patients. As a physician, he has treated the poor and uninsured in the inner city.

From 2001 to 2003, Trivedi served as the Battalion Surgeon for the 1st Battalion, 5th Regiment Marine Corps Infantry Battalion. His battalion was among the first US ground forces to enter Iraq. Trivedi served on the frontlines of battle, commanding a medical team that cared for over 1,200 of our troops and hundreds of Iraqi civilians. For his service, Lt. Commander Trivedi earned the Combat Action Ribbon, the Navy Commendation Medal, and his unit was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation.

After his service in Iraq, Trivedi received a Masters degree in Health Policy. He drew on his experience with combat medicine to become one of the early researchers to investigate the unique mental health issues affecting our troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Trivedi went on to serve as health policy advisor to the Navy Surgeon General and was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences.

After leaving the Navy, Trivedi is now a primary care physician at Reading Hospital and Medical Center. An expert on public health and Veteran’s health care, Trivedi served as health policy advisor to Barack Obama’s campaign for President. He met his wife Surekha while they were in college together. They live in Reading where they enjoy outdoor activities and are avid Philadelphia sports fans.
