Dr. Kathryn Martin, pediatric surgeon at Penn State Children’s Hospital and assistant professor of surgery and pediatrics, received the 2019 Dr. Sally Abston Distinguished Member Award from the Association of Women Surgeons Foundation.

She received this new award for her nationally recognized clinical expertise and for serving as “a powerful mentor and role model, especially in her work as part of the Women in Surgery group at Penn State,” the award notice states, adding “Through her special projects and research, she has demonstrated a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. She has worked with the Office of Diversity at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to ensure equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students and patients, and studied barriers to pediatric surgical care for Amish families.”
