University of Pittsburgh professor of nursing Margaret “Peg” Rosenzweig has been selected as this year’s recipient of the PNC Caring Award. She was recently featured on CBS Pittsburgh's Sunday Business Page.
Rosenzweig was selected because of her involvement in the local community, which includes encouraging diversity within the health sciences. At Pitt, Rosenzweig is a representative from the School of Nursing on health science programming for urban high school age children. Rosenzweig also leads research teams to ensure women with breast cancer receive timely diagnoses, treatment and support across the cancer-care continuum. Although PNC sponsors the Caring Award, the Pittsburgh chapter of the Susan G. Komen foundation selects recipients.
