Kristine Campbell, MD, MSc

Associate Professor Division of Child Protection and Family Health, University of Utah Department of Pediatrics

Dr. Campbell is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Division of Child Protection and Family Health at the University of Utah. She is committed to collaborative research supporting meaningful and measureable improvements in the social conditions and health outcomes for children with a history of adversity. Her work has focused on “missed opportunities” to ameliorate child and family risk at the time of CPS involvement for suspected maltreatment and on the medical evaluation of suspected maltreatment. Other ongoing research includes a mixed methods evaluation of parental perceptions of associations between adversities and well-being after maltreatment; evaluation of a psychotropic drug oversight program for children in foster care; and creation of innovative data resources that will provide unique cross-sector insights into the antecedents and outcomes of child welfare involvement for suspected maltreatment. Working with interdisciplinary teams has reinforced Dr. Campbell’s belief that child welfare, health care, and policy professionals share a commitment to improving systems to benefit the children and families that we serve together.
