R. Keith Campbell, RPh, FASHP, CDE, FAADE
2018 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner
This honor was awarded posthumously to Keith, who passed away in 2017. He was an ever-present champion for educators who worked tirelessly to change and improve our specialty. As a founding member of AADE, Keith was present at the inaugural discussions on forming our association. Trained as a pharmacist, he became a CDE in 1986, and served as a diabetes educator at Washington State University for 45 years. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 8 years old in 1949, Keith was determined to live out his life as fully as possible, during a time when people with diabetes were not given a lot of hope. A prolific researcher and author, he published over 630 manuscripts, 14 books, 55 book chapters and made more than 1,500 professional presentations.
