Alex Randall Kemper
Professor of Pediatrics

My research focuses on improving the quality of care that children receive by strengthening the linkages between primary care, specialty care, and public health services. I study a wide array of conditions to address this research focus, with special concentration on vision impairment and genetically determined conditions such as inborn errors of metabolism. In addition, juvenile idiopathic arthritis has been added as an area of concentration. I provide mentorship to trainees and faculty members as the Associate Division Chief for Research for the Division of Children’s Primary Care and oversee research activities within our childhood obesity fellowship training program. Examples of recent work include evaluating health care delivery for children with congenital hypothyroidism, assessment of the evidence base around screening for Krabbe disease, and evaluating the quality of vision screening services delivered in the primary care setting.
