James Norman, ’82, M.D. | Senior Surgeon, Norman Parathyroid Center
Professional Achievement Award 2014
Dr. James Norman’s incredible ambition as a first-generation, college-bound student coincided with a particular neighbor’s eye for talent to yield a life-changing opportunity. With the encouragement of his former neighbor, who was then-dean of UCF’s College of Health and Public Affairs, Norman would pursue an education in microbiology and go on to medical school. He currently dedicates his medical career to the study of hyperparathyroidism, and continues to make advances in easier treatments for the disease.
