The Massachusetts chapter of the March of Dimes presented two of its ten 2011 Nurse of the Year awards to Connell School alumni in December. Connell School Assistant Professor Katherine Gregory was honored in the nurse researcher category. Heidi Fantasia, M.S. ’97, Ph.D. ’09, a nursing professor at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, received the organization’s Nurse of the Year award in women’s health.

The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality through research, community service, education, and advocacy.
