1970s - Rose

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2007 - Winter


Deborah Rose, M.P.H. ’77, Ph.D. ’89, has been selected by the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA) to receive the Yale Medal, the highest award presented by the AYA and conferred in recognition of outstanding service to the university. Since its inception in 1952, the Yale Medal has been presented to 257 individuals, all of whom not only showed extraordinary devotion to the ideals of the university, but also demonstrated their support of Yale through extensive and exemplary voluntary service on behalf of Yale as a whole or one of its many schools, institutes or programs. Rose has served her class as secretary, class council member and reunion chair. Her dedication extends beyond her class to many areas of the university and the surrounding community, including the Sterling Memorial Library, Jonathan Edwards College and the new Rose Center that houses both the Yale Police Department and the Dixwell Community Center. She initiated computerization of the branch libraries of the New Haven Free Public Library. A longtime supporter of Yale’s initiatives to help revitalize the city of New Haven, Rose has worked since her earliest days at Yale with community outreach programs through Dwight Hall, the Yale-affiliated student-run public service organization.
