Quest for Health KC
A girl examines Dr Stuppy

I’m a mother and pediatrician who strongly believes that knowledge is power. I have been in practice over 20 years and have two young adult / college aged children. My experiences both as a mother and pediatrician have helped to develop my knowledge base and practice style.

I started this blog to share evidence based and personal reflections on various topics related to pediatrics and keeping kids healthy. Topics covered include those relevant to my current practice and pediatric health news. The types of issues covered are broad, much like what I experience in general pediatrics. Feel free to check out the post list or use the search bar to find certain topics that interest you.
