Christopher Payne, MD, Emeritus Professor of Urology at Stanford University presented the John J. Humpal award to Christine Norton, PhD, MA, RN. Dr. Payne asked the conference attendees, “What makes a young, talented nurse scientist choose the field of fecal incontinence? While I don’t have the exact answer to that question, we are certainly lucky that she did. I first met Christine at the WHO International Consultation on Incontinence in 2005 and was struck by the clarity and insightfulness of her committee’s findings. Christine achieved the classic goal for medical faculty with major contributions in teaching, education, and clinical care. In fact, there is practically nothing in the entire field to which she has not contributed. For this she was awarded an endowed professorship. I’m a bit jealous, but very proud to be her colleague, and to present her this well-deserved award.”
