Shrewsbury – The Rotary Club of Shrewsbury presented the Paul Harris Award to Dr. Alan Picarillo at its Installation Luncheon June 17. The award, named in honor of the Rotary's founder, is the International Rotary's highest community service award.

Picarillo, a pediatric neonatologist at UMass Memorial Healthcare and assistant professor of pediatrics at UMass Medical School in Worcester, was honored for his work in establishing the NicView webcam system at the hospital. NicView is a special web camera that is installed bedside in the hospital neonatal intensive care unit and allows families to see their baby via real-time video. Rotary clubs from central Massachusetts have been working with Picarillo to raise funds for additional cameras to be installed.
