Dr. Danielle Campagne, who has been saving lives and educating leaders in medicine for more than18 years in the Fresno area, is among this year’s Top Dog Alumni Award honorees. 

The Top Dog awards recognize a select group of Fresno State alumni who have made significant contributions to society, and whose accomplishments, affiliations and careers have honored Fresno State.

This year’s Top Dog Alumni Award honorees will be celebrated on April 22, 2023 at an event held at the new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union at Fresno State.

Campagne, the interim chief of emergency medicine at UCSF Fresno, will receive the Distinguished Alumna Award — the highest honor given by the Fresno State Alumni Association. She is recognized for her work as an active clinical educator, international medical lecturer and published author in topics of emergency medical services, wilderness medicine, sepsis and medical education. 

Growing up in Sanger, Campagne knew at a young age she wanted to be a doctor. She graduated from Fresno State with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2000. Throughout the past 18 years she has made a name for herself at Community Regional Medical Center, the only Level 1 trauma center between Los Angeles and Sacramento. In addition to her duties as interim chief of emergency medicine at UCSF Fresno, Campagne serves as medical director of American Ambulance in Fresno.

Combining her love of education and emergency medical services, Campagne co-edited an Emergency Medicine Board Review textbook for Oxford Press and is an associate editor for CorePendium, an online medical textbook. She is also a host of a nationally recognized podcast.

Each year at Fresno State one alumnus or alumna is selected from each of the University’s eight academic schools and colleges, plus the Department of Athletics, and the Division of Research and Graduate Studies to receive a Top Dog Outstanding Alumni Award. The Outstanding Alumni Award recognizes Fresno State alumni for exceptional achievements in their fields.
