30th Annual Celebration, 1984-2014
In 1984, Charles J. Cella established the Knowlton Incentive for Excellence Fund to honor his physician, Norman Knowlton Jr., MD, for his compassionate caregiving. Since then, the Knowlton Fund at The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital has awarded nearly $3 million in support of resident education programs at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine.
The Knowlton Fund launched the Knowlton Incentive for Excellence Award program, which recognizes resident physicians who have demonstrated the ability to balance exceptional, compassionate care with a commitment to being leaders in the science of internal medicine. These residents embody the Knowlton Spirit. Since 1985, nearly 160 select physicians have received this prestigious award and have carried the Knowlton Spirit with them throughout their medical careers.
