Eileen Zungolo Spirit of Service Award
About the Spirit of Service Award
Each year, the Spirit of Service award is given to a person whose life symbolizes and represents the mission of the McGinley-Rice Symposium. The award is named for the Duquesne University School of Nursing former Dean, Eileen Zungolo, who wrote the grant that brought Sr. Rosemary Donley to Duquesne and established the symposia. This year's recipient will be announced during the 2022 Symposium in October.
