Dr. Manasseh has participated in many conferences and speaking engagements to promote breast health and help women make the right health decisions. She has been the recipient of several awards, most notably the Magida Award from the Fairfield County Medical Association and the Rosenthal Family Foundation, given to a physician who has shown a notable capacity for patient treatment and care and a special sensitivity to patient-physician relationships.
