Marshall to head Upstate Medical University’s health professions and nursing alumni associations

Andrea Marshall has been named director of health professions and nursing alumni associations at Upstate Medical University. The two organizations represent over 5,000 of the College of Health Professions and the College of Nursing, two of four colleges at Upstate Medical University.

“We’re very happy to welcome Andrea to our development team,” said Eileen Pezzi, vice president for development at Upstate Medical University Foundation. “Her direct experience in alumni relations and fundraising make her a valuable addition to our development staff.”

Marshall will manage the annual campaigns, alumni programs and major gift appeals for both associations. In addition, Marshall will organize the Upstate Medical University Foundation’s annual gala, a black-tie event that supports the mission of SUNY Upstate through funding of specific projects.

Marshall joins Upstate Medical University from the University of Rochester, where she served as associate director of development and alumni relations. Prior to her position at the University of Rochester, Marshall was assistant director of annual giving at Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y. She is a graduate of Syracuse University’s School of Education.

The College of Health Professions is a leading educator both locally and nationally for seven of the most competitive careers in the health professions: physical therapists (preserve, develop and restore maximum physical function), respiratory therapists (help patients who have difficulty breathing), medical technologists (perform lab tests to diagnose and monitor disease), medical imaging technologists (take X-rays, MRIs and CTs to diagnose injury or disease), cytotechnologists (examine cells for cancer and other diseases), radiation therapists (treat cancer patients with radiation), cardiovascular perfusionists (pump or oxygenated blood to temporarily replace the work of the heart or lungs).

The College of Nursing is the only college in the Syracuse area that offers an upper division program to further educate registered nurses offering three academic programs: bachelor and master’s degree programs as well as post master’s degree advanced certificate.

The Upstate Medical University Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation which provides avenues for private contributions made to benefit Upstate Medical University. The Foundation conducts multi-year, million-dollar endowment campaigns, administers alumni associations for the colleges of nursing and health professions; implements named giving and planned giving programs, runs an annual campaign; and sponsors several major fund-raising events annually. In addition, the Foundation is home to the local chapter of the Children’s Miracle Network, which hosts a multitude of fundraisers throughout the year.

Marshall resides in Camillus.
