Mikki Meadows-Oliver, assistant professor at Yale University School of Nursing and a clinician for the pediatric lead poisoning and asthma outreach programs at Yale-New Haven Hospital, was recently recognized by the University of Connecticut as an outstanding alumna under the age of 40.

UConn is highlighting the achievements of 40 outstanding alumni, all under the age of 40, who were recognized during activities on the weekend of Sept. 19-20.

The 40 will be featured in the fall/winter edition of the alumni magazine and were recognized during a halftime ceremony at the UConn-Baylor football game on Friday night, Sept. 19. UCONN Magazine, scheduled for publication on Nov. 1, is sent to 195,000 alumni as well as parents of students and friends of the University, reaching a circulation of 200,000.
“The achievements of these remarkable UConn alumni demonstrate the ability of our students to make a real difference in their professions, their communities, our nation and the world,” says UConn President Michael J. Hogan. “All of these talented young alumni have distinguished themselves in a wide range of disciplines within just a few years of earning their degrees. We are proud of the role the University of Connecticut has played in their exciting and successful careers. They set a great example for our next generation of UConn students.”

The 40 Under 40 group returning to campus will participate in a variety of activities including interactions with student groups about their careers, experiences and achievements. The 40 alumni represent graduates from each of UConn’s 14 schools and colleges.
