Dr. Jee's primary areas of inquiry relate to health disparities for underserved children. Her recent work has focused on psychosocial issues for children, health needs for children in foster care, and the intersection between primary pediatrics and mental health care.
Dr. Jee's current research interests include resilience for children in the child welfare system and mental health needs for children in foster care. She has received funding from local foundations to do both primary data collection studies examining quality of care and adherence to clinical standards in foster care, and also from federal sources (Administration for Children and Families) to conduct secondary data analysis using nationally representative samples to study child welfare issues.
She is a former Robert Wood Johnson Physician Faculty Scholar, and has focused her work on primary care-based mental health screening for adolescents in foster care. She is co-PI on a collaborative pilot intervention project to examine how mindfulness skills impact stress reduction for youth in foster and kinship care, aged 14-21 years. This is a mixed-methods RCT using quantitative, qualitative, and physiologic measures to study impact of this supervised, structured group program for vulnerable youth in Rochester.
Other recent work funded by the New York State Health Foundation include evidence-based training of foster parents using the Incredible Years curriculum, leading a national learning collaborative for foster care, which linked multiple health care foster care sites around the country to share best practices and examine quality of care measures, and developing handouts on managing behavioral problems of young children.
She has experience as a diagnostician for fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, and she has been an invited keynote speaker for local and statewide talks on this topic, as well as a member of a grant review panel for the Centers for Disease Control.
She has led workshops at national meetings on quality of care and work-life balance.
