2019 Alumnae Achievement Awards

Wellesley’s highest honor is given annually to graduates of distinction who through their achievements have brought honor to themselves and the College. On Friday, Oct. 18, the Wellesley College Alumnae Association will present this year’s awards to:


Carol Remmer Angle ’48

Angle is a world expert on lead poisoning and cofounder of one of the country’s first poison control centers. Her work related to lead and arsenic exposure has had a significant impact on environmental health globally. Throughout her career as a pediatrician, toxicologist, and educator, Angle broke many barriers, including becoming one of the first women in the U.S. to chair a medical school department (University of Nebraska College of Medicine). She provided editorial leadership at the Journal of Toxicology—Clinical Toxicology and contributed scientific expertise to many organizations including the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency.


Diane Rowland ’70

The executive vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, Rowland is a nationally recognized health-policy expert with a career in public policy. Her research has focused on health insurance coverage, access to care, and health financing for low-income, elderly, and disabled populations. An authority on Medicare and Medicaid, Rowland frequently testifies as an expert witness before the U.S. Congress on health policy issues and is widely published in the field. She is also an adjunct professor in the department of health policy and management at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University.
