Colosimo named Alumni Award of Distinction winner


BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Alumni Association will honor Dr. Lee Colosimo with its PBAA Alumni Award of Distinction for outstanding professional achievement and exemplary service to the community.

The award will be presented by Dr. Livingston Alexander, university president, and Chris Luke, PBAA president and 1995 graduate, during commencement exercises on Sunday, May 1.

“I’m thrilled to join the PBAA in presenting the Alumni Award of Distinction to Dr. Colosimo, one of the most accomplished and decorated physicians in the country,” Alexander said.

“That Dr. Colosimo received his educational foundation at Pitt-Bradford and Bradford Area High School speaks volumes about the longstanding quality of those local educational institutions.”

Colosimo, a cardiovascular, thoracic and endovascular surgeon in Houston, Texas, was nominated by Beverly and Fred Gallup.

A Bradford native, Colosimo attended Pitt-Bradford from 1965-66 and continued his studies at the University of Pittsburgh, earning a bachelor’s degree in 1969. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 1973 and completed an internship and residency in surgery at Presbyterian University Hospital.

He has practiced in the Houston area since 1979 and is a member of many medical associations and societies.

Colosimo has received many professional acknowledgements, including being named by several publications to lists of top doctors. In 2004, he was named by H Texas magazine as one of the Top 486 Best Doctors in Houston. He was also included in the Consumers’ Research Council of America’s “Guide to America’s Top Surgeons” in 2004 and 2005 and the Consumers’ Research Council’s “Guide to America’s Top Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons” in 2009.

Candidates for the Alumni Award of Distinction must have attended Pitt-Bradford, but may have moved on to graduate from other institutions. Candidates are evaluated based on their level of professional achievement and service to the community. Nominations can be submitted by any member of the Pitt-Bradford community, including alumni, faculty, staff, administration, students and advisory board members.

Last year Pitt-Bradford honored another physician, Dr. Jill Owens.
