KC Business Journal: Twenty to Know, Keeping KC Healthy

Dr. Jennifer Watts

By Brian Kaberline

Editor Brian Kaberline shares 20 health care professionals to know - each including a short explanation of why that person is on the list. 

Dr. Jennifer Watts

Chief emergency management medical officer, Children’s Mercy

Watts’ work in emergency medicine took on a much larger scope due to Covid-19. She was a leader in plotting and executing the hospital’s response to the pandemic. That included planning for drive-up testing while also seeing that Children’s Mercy could continue to safely provide non-Covid-related care. Watts worked to increase vaccination of staff. That extended to vaccination of children — working with continuing changes in approvals of vaccines for younger and younger patients.

Watts also is an associate professor with the University of Missouri-Kansas City and University of Kansas medical schools.
