On Thursday, September 27, the Boston College Alumni Association awarded Dr. Rosanna DeMarco MS ’76, Associate Professor at the Connell School of Nursing, the 2007 Alumni Awards of Excellence in the Heath discipline.

As both an advanced practice nurse and a nursing educator, Rosanna DeMarco has specialized in women’s health, with particular emphasis on African-American women living with HIV. She has a 10-year history of funded research in this area and has over 30 publications in national and international practice and research journals. DeMarco holds certification as a community health nurse and an AIDS care registered nurse.

DeMarco has been recognized for her work by the American Academy of Nursing, the Women of Color AIDS Council, and the Massachusetts Association of Registered Nurses.

The Alumni Awards of Excellence program was established in 1973-74 to broaden the opportunities for alumni recognition. Each year since then, the Boston College community has honored one alumna or alumnus in each of the following disciplines: Arts and Humanities, Commerce, Education, Health, Law, Public Service, Religion and Science.
