Beginning in 1988 Noreen was first, my favorite professor, then my friend, then the department chair, then the first non-physician dean. Noreen was teacher, role model, mentor, confidant & dear friend. For too few years she interacted & influenced me in person. She witnessed the onset of ME/CFS & still believed in me. Dealing with that illness not only prevented me from becoming her colleague, but also from reaching her in time. She was what every good teacher should be, inspiration & aspiration. I taught better, I thought better & I still go on "which" hunts. (She would tear this paragraph apart.) Another light in this world went out too soon. God be with you, Noreen.

She took great steps to understand communities, to be inclusive of all thoughts and opinions, and truly valued the work that mattered... changing lives of children. She will be missed greatly.

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. ...

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

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.
