UTMB Health professor Kendall M. Campbell, MD appointed to The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) Committee on Meaningful Outcome Measures in Adult Hearing Health Care. 

Dr. Campbell is a Professor and the Sealy Hutchings and Lucille Wright Hutchings Chair in the Department of Family Medicine has been named to the new NASEM Committee on hearing outcomes. An ad hoc committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will examine the state of the science in outcomes research for interventions in adult hearing health care (excluding surgically placed prosthetic devices), with an emphasis on measures that are meaningful to the individual and the clinician. The committee will determine a core set of existing standard outcome measures, define the core outcome domains beyond communication that should be measured, and develop a framework and a set of recommendations to guide the development of standardized and meaningful measures that are fit for use in different settings.

Adult hearing health care lacks standard outcome measures that are related in meaningful ways to the individual’s perception of their functional abilities and the impact their hearing difficulties have on their quality of life. “

Dr. Campbell is nationally recognized for his work in primary care and in support of underrepresented learners and faculty and has published over 100 peer reviewed manuscripts along with book chapters and National Academy of Medicine publications. He has received honors and awards for his service to the field of medicine including the Martin Luther King, Jr. Distinguished Service Award, the Exemplary Teacher Award, and the 2021 Society of Teachers in Family Medicine (STFM) President’s Award. He also completed the AAMC Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) certificate program. Dr. Campbell is a founding director of the STFM Leadership through Scholarship fellowship through which he mentors and provides faculty and leadership development to early career Family Medicine faculty all over the country. He has brought this work to UTMB serving as Co-I on the HRSA Center of Excellence for Professional Advancement and Research grant, providing faculty development in writing skills for early career faculty at UTMB. He is also a member of the Academy of Research Mentors. Dr. Campbell was a 2014-2016 Fellow of the National Academy of Medicine and elected as a member into the National Academy of Medicine as part of the class of 2021.
