Staff Spotlight – Kathy Lee-Son, MD

Dr. Lee-Son is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Division of Nephrology, Dialysis, and Transplantation.

I have been in Nephrology for 6 years. I travel for Outreach clinics to Johnston and Bettendorf. I have been the Medical Director of the Pediatric Dialysis Unit and Infusion Center since July 2018.

My husband, Dave, and I adopted our 10 year old son, Gage, in May 2019. He has a great sense of humor and loves anything sports related.

I enjoy swimming. I used to run half-marathons until a toe injury in 2015. I would love to get back into running somehow.

My dream job is to look after kids on dialysis but get them to transplant as soon as possible!

Most fascinating place I’ve ever visited? Scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef in 2008.

I love Sushi at Sushiya!

Favorite sports team? Vancouver Canucks in the NHL. My favorite book is Tuesdays with Morrie. It brings tears to my eyes every time I read it.

My one wish would be to transport myself to see my family on the whim. They are scattered and live in Detroit, Windsor Ontario, Los Angeles, Tampa Bay, Singapore, and China.

Fun fact: I’ve participated in a Tough Mudder race.
