Dr. Kimara Gustafson

Assistant Professor at Department of Pediatrics, MD, MPH

I am an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota, Department of Pediatrics. My professional areas of interests include special health care needs of adoptive children and children who have experience in the foster care system, socio-emotional trauma impact on development, racial and cultural social identity development for trans-racially adoptive or foster care children, and racial discrimination among historically marginalized youth in the United States. As my work continues to evolve, I am now exploring additional tools and methods to continue to best support, encourage and empower children and their families to ensure they can reach their fullest potential. Additional passions include mentorship, coaching and providing professional support to those around me.
