Regina Morano ’95 was recently named vice president and corporate compliance officer at Ameritox, a pain medication monitoring company based in Baltimore, Md.
Morano was also recently recognized with a 2011 Top Counsel award from Rochester, N.Y., legal newspaper The Daily Record for her work as vice president of legal and regulatory affairs and general counsel with Thompson Health, a hospital and health system that serves 120,000 residents in the Greater Finger Lakes Region of New York state. She was one of 10 in-house and general counsels to earn the award this year.
Despite being a Rochester native and long-time resident, Morano has welcomed the move to Baltimore, as she spent two years in the city prior to law school working at a day center and night shelter for homeless women and helping to start a health care for the homeless program. She also happens to be a fervent Orioles fan.
While Morano’s affinity for health care was bolstered by her time in Baltimore, her passion for health care law really took hold in Professor Dale Moore’s classroom during law school.
“Health law was a relatively new area of specialization when I was student at Albany Law,” said Morano. “Professor Moore cleared a path for many of us who wanted to merge public service with transactional expertise and professional achievement.”
Morano has remained a committed partner with Albany Law since graduating, including serving on the board of trustees and leading the development of the Rochester-area alumnae group.
