She was a key player in developing the Trauma Systems of the state and country and served as the Chair of the Florida Committee of Trauma. Dr. Campbell was inducted into the Hillsborough County Women's Hall of Fame in 2018, was awarded the 2017 USF College of Medicine Alumni of the Year, and USF Women's Leadership Award in 2005.
