Denise Howland was regarded as the area's premier dietitian working with the most complex, acute medical problems.
Denise Howland was held in high regard by her fellow dietitians and other health care providers she worked with. Throughout her relatively brief career, which was cut short by illness, she showed a demanding nature, expecting the most from herself and those she worked with. Her friends and colleagues remember her as a dynamic, intelligent dietitian at facilities such as ECMC and Sister's Hospital working in the ICU and other advanced care areas. The hallmark of her life was the desire to learn--shown by her return to school as an MS thesis student in nutrition.
