Dr. Jee sees patients in the Strong Pediatric Practice, and also teaches and supervises medical students and residents in the outpatient setting. Her research focuses on meeting the mental health needs for children and their families, teaching trainees to provide integrated and trauma-informed pediatric care, and understanding how to share anticipatory guidance with parents to manage developmental and social-emotional problems for underserved children, many of whom have experienced adverse childhood experiences.


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.

As a former Robert Wood Johnson Physician Faculty Scholar and current Dean's Teaching Fellow, she has continued to work on primary care-based mental health screening and the education of trainees in managing social-emotional issues in primary care. Recent projects have included implementing standardized clinic-based screening (developmental and social-emotional), leading a national multi-site learning collaborative for foster care health sites, overseeing an evidence-based parent training program for foster parents, and leading a collaborative pilot intervention RCT teaching mindfulness skills to youth in foster and kinship care. Current state and locally funded grant projects include close collaborations with several community-based agencies, and provision of direct youth development opportunities for underserved youth in the city of Rochester.
