Kathi Kemper, MD, MPH

Director of Ohio State’s Center for Integrative Health and Wellness

Came to Ohio State from Wake Forest






Dr. Kathi Kemper is a nationally recognized expert in integrative medicine whose work as director of Ohio State’s new Center for Integrative Health and Wellness is changing lives throughout central Ohio.

Like Dr. Kemper, the world’s best and brightest physicians and researchers are coming to Ohio State to create the future of medicine.

What attracted me to Ohio State? I am strongly attracted to Ohio State’s culture of personalized medicine, health and wellness, and collaboration across the entire campus. These elements are the foundation of integrative medicine, and Ohio State is poised to become one of the country’s top integrative medicine programs. It’s an exciting opportunity!

How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? I work with colleagues across Ohio State’s campus to optimize the evidence-based care we provide at our Integrative Medicine clinic, deliver integrative care to every patient care setting at Ohio State, teach healthcare professionals and teams to deliver personalized integrative care, and promote integrative medicine research that improves people’s lives.

But for Ohio State...We would not have one of the country’s premiere integrative health and wellness programs right here in Ohio, with acupuncture, Ayurveda, chiropractic, functional medicine, integrative medicine, mind-body medicine, nutrition, and yoga in one convenient location. Ohio State’s patients already receive the region’s best care. Now, we are making that care even better by bringing integrative care services to every person touched by Ohio State.

Over the next decade, Ohio State plans to attract 500 world-class faculty leaders who will propel discovery in the fields of health and wellness, energy and environment and food production and security. Through this effort, Ohio State will truly lead the way in finding solutions to the technological, social and environmental stresses faced by our community and our world.
