Ms. Marie Bien-Aimee, a senior clinical aide in the clinical simulation and laboratory technology center, and Ms. Maria DeAcetis, administrative assistant in the Office of Research, have each won a coveted New York University “Give a Violet” award. Marie and Maria were chosen by a University-wide selection committee of faculty, students, administrators, and staff from over 300 nominees. The selection committee judged them to be “individuals who exemplify the University’s spirit in their enthusiastic and caring approach to their jobs.”

“This is a splendid tribute to two outstanding staff members,” said Dean Alfano, “and a wonderful way of completing the triangle of major University awards won by NYUCD faculty and administrators this year.”
