A person with strong convictions to improve the world. You helped me see how much one person can make a lasting contribution.

We were very fortunate to work with Noreen and many esteemed friends and colleagues participating in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Allies Against Asthma Program and the Merck Childhood Asthma Network. Noreen was so unique in her love of live and generosity in mentoring style, beyond her grand leadership, curiosity, and brilliance as a research and public health advocate.

In our work in Puerto Rico she had a game changing role, like I am sure she had for many, many people nationally and worldwide. As the Principal Investigator of the Allies Against Asthma program she took a chance on selecting us as one of the sites at a time when Puerto Rican asthma morbidity was not widely recognized and we didn’t have a track record on asthma. We also have fond memories of all the times she visited us in Puerto Rico and enjoyed the culture as much as the science.

Siempre te recordaremos, Noreen, y guardaremos un lugar muy especial para tí en nuestros recuerdos y corazones.

Marielena Lara, Gilberto Ramos, Jesús González and all the Puerto Rico asthma team

It is an honor to be part of this historic tribute to my esteemed colleague, Noreen Clark. I had the pleasure of working with Noreen when she was Dean of the School of Public Health at UM. At the time I was Dean of the of the UM School of Social Work. We collaborated together on various research initiatives that brought intellectual value to the campus, the state and nation. We were also both members of the Institute of Medicine and both passionately committed to working within the organization to focus and address the nation's and indeed, the world's disparities in health and health care. From Europe, to Africa, Asia and more, she brought light and resources to health problems within specific groups, from traditionally disadvantaged ethnic minorities to economically challenged communities.

Noreen was the consummate scholar and a valued friend. Her legacy is immeasurable, but she leaves with us a rich and well laid path from which to continue her compassionate work.

You were a mentor to so many - I am just proud to count myself as one of those you inspired and sent on their way to our various roads in public health. It was your personal touch that made you rise head and shoulders above so many others and I will always remember you for that.

I am fortunate to have known her and worked with her for 5 years. She is a role model for female scholars for generations to come. She will be deeply missed.

You were around my family and have been a friend from the first time you were in my shop with my wife Nadia. Your presence still remains in Tarzo (Italy) along the way in center of town, I remember our dialog about italian grammar, your 300 books and my bookcase. Our time in Venice, a conversation in your garden about flowers and plants when we visited, and a place to buy them. Your disposition about people for a lunch/dinner around a table. Your schedule to visit your home in my first time in NYC, a tansfer from Italy to U.S.A. Francesca and Alessio's wedding and many many other things to tell. A woman like you, I never forget, and I told everyone, a special woman I met. Near a special woman there is always a special man, Sir George Robert Pitt. Ciao, Mrs. Noreen. Jose', Nadia, Francesca, Roberta

My wife, Mary Ann, and I send our deepest condolences. We had the privilege of knowing Noreen for several years up in western CT where we were guests at the home she and George had there. We will always remember Noreen as one of the most vibrant and lovely people we have ever met. We are stunned over this sad news.
