UConn Health employees celebrating milestone years of service were honored at last night’s annual Employee Recognition Dinner at the Farmington Club.

The longest-tenured employee honored this year is Peter Setlow, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biophysics, who joined UConn Health in 1971.

“I’m alive, still productive, and still enjoying almost everything I do. And you look up, and it’s been 45 years,” Setlow says. “I’ve spent so much of my life working here, I want to see the institution be successful. As long as I’m still productive and still enjoying it, why would I stop?”

A total of 108 employees with milestones of either 25, 30, 35, 40, or 45 years of service were honored. Those with milestones of 5, 10, 15, and 20 years of service will be invited to an Employee Recognition Celebration scheduled for Nov. 21.
