Marianne Hutti, a leader in women’s health care and professor at the University of Louisville School of Nursing, has received one of the highest honors in the nursing profession.

Hutti was among 195 nurses worldwide inducted in the 2018 class of the American Academy of Nursing fellows, which recognizes distinguished nurse leaders who work in education, management, practice, policy and research. The induction ceremony took place during the academy’s annual policy conference Nov. 1-3 in Washington, D.C.

Hutti, who maintains an independent practice in women’s health, is internationally known for her research on perinatal loss and has received national awards as a nursing educator and researcher. She created the Perinatal Grief Intensity Scale, developed for clinical use to predict intense grief and identify need for professional follow-up after perinatal loss, which includes miscarriage, stillbirth and death of an infant within 28 days after birth.

Her most recent study included development of a free app of the Perinatal Grief Intensity Scale, available to health care providers at uoflnursingpgis.org and Google Play.

Lisa Carter-Harris, an alumna of the UofL School of Nursing’s Ph.D. and master’s degree programs, also was inducted in the 2018 class of academy fellows.
