W&L Alum Honored by Choate Rosemary Hall
Dr. Daniel J. Carucci, of the Class of 1980, was honored this month with an Alumni Award from Choate Rosemary Hall, from which he graduated in 1976.
Dan is president of Washington-based Global Health Consulting Inc., which works with corporations, international non-governmental organizations, governments, foundations and individual philanthropists “to improve the effectiveness of investments in global health.” He has previously served as vice president for global health at the United Nations Foundation and as director of the Grand Challenges in Global Health Initiative at the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health.
After W&L, Dan received his medical degree from the University of Virginia and then earned a master’s and a Ph.D. from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He spent 20 years of active service as a U.S. Navy physician and research scientist, including a stint as director of the U.S. Navy Malaria Vaccine Program.
In his acceptance remarks, Dan told the gathering: “For me it’s not, and it’s never been, about what you accomplish, but it’s about whose lives you’ve bettered. It’s about the opportunities you give others to shine. It’s about the teams you’ve brought together to solve difficult problems. And it’s about tackling head-on difficult challenges that will result not just in incremental change but will result in transformational change.”
Congratulations to Daniel.
