Mary Hickey, associate clinical professor and director of undergraduate affairs in the physical therapy department at the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, died one month before she would have turned 60, and seven years after she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Her passing in June was mourned by the hundreds of students, teachers, administrators, and staffers who had known her for more than 20 years at Northeastern.

It wasn’t an easy transition, she said during a webinar hosted by the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, but like others in her profession, she has had to acclimate to new protocols brought about by COVID-19.
