Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Carrie Daymont has developed tools to clean pediatric and adult anthropometric data from large datasets to facilitate their use in analyses for research, quality improvement and public health evaluation. The pediatric and adult algorithms, freely available in the R package growthcleanr in GitHub (link under research output in 2017 below), identify weight and height values that are implausible for an individual, based on the individual’s other available measurements.

Dr. Daymont’s work in anthropometric data cleaning stems from her work studying growth, primarily in young children. This includes research on head growth and conditions that cause large head size, growth in children with congenital heart disease compared to age- and sex-matched peers, and the clinical impact of using different growth curves in children with slow weight gain.

Dr. Daymont has also worked with collaborators to develop vital sign references for acutely ill children. These percentiles are used at the bedside by trainees and staff in multiple children’s hospitals.

Teaching and educational interests

Dr. Carrie Daymont makes patient- and family-centered care and shared decision-making priorities in her clinical teaching with medical students, residents, and other trainees. She is director of Grand Rounds for the Department of Pediatrics and co-chair of Pediatric Research Day. Dr. Daymont serves as a research mentor to medical students as well as junior faculty members in her division, and gives departmental and division lectures on evidence-based medicine as well as her research.

Clinical interests

Dr. Carrie Daymont is a pediatric hospitalist, and has a special interest in caring for children with atypical growth and children with disabilities. She is an attending physician at Penn State Children’s Hospital and on the pediatric unit at Penn State Health Rehabilitation Hospital, and she also sees patients in the neonatology neurodevelopmental follow-up clinic. Dr. Daymont was a primary care pediatrician during her first four years of practice, and brings that perspective to her inpatient practice, research, and teaching.
