Dr. Lynn McNicoll was the recipient of this year’s Karen Rosene-Montella Spark Award for Innovation in Women’s Health in RI, which was announced at the Women’s Health Council of Rhode Island Fall Conference on November 16. This year’s topic was “Healthy Aging in Women.” Dr. McNicoll was nominated for demonstrating superior abilities in all areas of her academic career—not only as a dedicated and empathic physician, but also as an outstanding educator and innovative quality improvement activist. She was supported for nomination with great enthusiasm, given her past, current and highly promising future contributions to the care of the elderly, especially women, in RI.
She asked me to relay her note of appreciation to the entire Women’s Health Council:
“I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to the Women’s Council for the Spark Award. It was truly an honor to receive that award in Dr. Rosene’s name.”
