By Emily Robb, M.D., Lee’s Summit Physicians Group Internal Medicine
I graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 2000 and joined Lee’s Summit Internal Medicine in 2006. I enjoy all aspects of Internal Medicine, but I’m especially interested in adolescent medicine and women’s health. I completed residencies in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Adolescents are often an age group which is lost between pediatrics and adult medicine, and providing them care is a passion of mine.
When I’m not at the office you will either find me hanging out on my porch or if the weather is nice, camping.
I grew up camping and I’m so glad to be able to share that activity with my kids now.
I love taking my pop-top camper all over the Midwest and just chilling out under the stars next to a campfire. It really is my favorite way to relax. We try to camp several weekends locally over the summer and then take one long trip that is farther away. This summer we have a long camping trip planned for Yellowstone that we are all very excited about!
Being outdoors is so good for your health both mentally and physically. I really try to spend as much time outside as possible.
I also enjoy being a board member of Education First Shawnee Mission.
I live in the Shawnee Mission school district. Three years ago, I joined a group of parents that wanted to be active in improving our school district. Our goal was to help elect representatives in Kansas and for our school board that were going to support public education and our schools. Our group has been active in recruiting new school board members to our district and communicating with our district administrators.
We also spend time talking to our representatives in Topeka about the importance of public school funding. I believe strong public schools are the foundation to a great community.
