Date: 
May 9, 2018

It is with great sadness that we share with you that Michael Grasso, a graduating Clinical Nurse Leader student, has passed away unexpectedly just before his graduation from our master's degree program. His compassion and dedication were evident in his work here at the College of Nursing and around the world.

He was an amazing and dedicated nurse leader who had served in Iraq with the Army Reserves and helped to rebuild after the Hurricanes in Haiti. He most recently served as the Nurse Care Coordinator at Massachusetts General Hospital and had worked for the hospital for over 15 years. Currently, he was working in telehealth with the Visiting Nurse and Sustainable Health Care for the Future Initiative.

There will be a card at Scholarship Day tomorrow for those who wish to send messages to his family.

His obituary is listed below:
