Following psychiatry training at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Kim has been a leader in advancing new models of integrative, two-generation (parent-child) healing that address roots causes that undermine wellbeing, such as childhood trauma, toxic stress, poverty, and discrimination. Through the Mother-Baby Program and the new Redleaf Center, Dr. Kim hopes to help children thrive and to disrupt the generational cycle of trauma and mental illness by supporting the emotional wellbeing of parents and disrupting policies and practices that perpetuate the Minnesota’s shameful maternal and child health disparities.
