Kristin M. Uhler, Ph.D.

In 2003 the Kelley Family/Schlessman Family Scottish Rite Masons Chair in Childhood Language Disorders was established at Children's Hospital Colorado with a $2 million gift from the Scottish Rite Foundation of Colorado.

Kristin Uhler, Ph.D., is honored by the Foundation as the second occupant of this distinguished position — the first $2 million Chair to be established at Children's Hospital Colorado.

The Scottish Rite Foundation of Colorado established this Chair to help ensure continued leadership in childhood language development sciences by Children's Hospital Colorado. In addition, the Foundation established the Chair to provide for continued coordination of all Foundation-supported RiteCare operations in Colorado.

Dr. Uhler is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and has been affiliated with Children's Hospital Colorado since 2015. An audiologist by training, Kristin’s passion is childhood language and supporting families in best practices for healthy development. She holds a prestigious mentored research award from the National Institutes of Health and her research is focused on identifying a biomarker for language development in infants, especially in infants who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
