Dr. Jessica Sparks Lilley, a pediatric endocrinologist on the faculty of the University of Mississippi Medical Center and Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson, provides care to area children with diabetes and other endocrine conditions such as disorders related to growth and puberty.

A native of Belmont, Dr. Lilley joined UMMC in July 2013 as an assistant professor after completing a fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. She opened her clinic in Tupelo in early 2014.


A Mississippi State University graduate, Dr. Lilley earned her medical degree from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pa. Professional affiliations include the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Pediatric Endocrine Society, the American Heart Association and the National Lipid Academy.

Dr. Lilley, who has had specific training in the management of cholesterol disorders in children, is the author or coauthor of five published articles and two more accepted for publication. She has coauthored two medical textbook chapters and five abstracts.

Among her honors are an American Heart Association Epidemiology Tahoe Fellowship, the 2010 Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania Pediatric House Staff Humanitarian Award and, last summer, the Women in Endocrinology’s Young Investigator Award. In 2011 she won the Pennsylvania Academy of Dermatology Outstanding Service Award, which stemmed from her advocacy work on sun safety in children following her own melanoma diagnosis – she is now a five-year survivor.
