The ICS Board of Trustees was delighted to announce that Linda Cardozo was the 2017 winner of the ICS Lifetime Achievement Award. This award was created to honour an individual who has made a lifetime commitment and a lasting contribution to the advancement of science, education, clinical practice or public awareness in the field of continence.
Linda was presented with her award at the ICS Annual Dinner, during the ICS Annual Scientific Meeting in Florence. During Linda’s acceptance speech she stated “I am very proud of all my achievements but the thing that I am most proud of was enabling other people to achieve a potential that they would not have obtained themselves. To date I have trained 8 sub speciality trainees and nearly 50 fellows and nurses, all over the world, improving the quality of life for women with pelvic floor disorders and I’m so proud of how they have turned out. Which makes me very happy to receive this lifetime achievement award.”
