Three employees within the University of South Alabama Health System recently were selected to be included in the 2015 class of the Mobile Bay 40 Under 40: Dr. Elizabeth Minto, assistant professor of neurology at the USA College of Medicine and a neurologist with USA Physicians Group; Emily Hughes, nursing project coordinator at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital; and Kelly McCarron, director of development at the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute.
Elizabeth Minto, M.D., 39
Assistant Professor of Neurology, University of South Alabama
A board-certified neurologist, director of neuroimmunology and infusion and director of the neurology clinic operations, Dr. Minto has proven that her strong medical and leadership skills go beyond the classroom. From 2011 to 2013, she served as the medical consultant for the Social Security Administration for the State of Alabama, and since 2007 has been a member of the Medical Society of Mobile County, an organization with more than 1,000 Mobile area medical professional members. Additionally, she has sat on the board of directors for Camp Rap-a-Hope as well as for Shepherd’s Place Adult Day Respite.
Emily Hughes, 35
Nursing Project Coordinator, University of South Alabama Children’s and Women’s Hospital
As 2004’s Excellence in Practice award recipient from the USA College of Nursing and 2014 Alpha Omicron Pi Gamma Delta Chapter Alumnae of the Year, Hughes proves an asset to her coworkers and community. When not working to keep the hospital in compliance with safety regulations, she devotes her time to charitable causes through the Junior League of Mobile and serving on the Alpha Omicron Pi Alumni Advisory Board at the University of South Alabama.
Kelly McCarron, 38
Director of Development, University of South Alabama Mitchell Cancer Institute
Since college, McCarron has shown a natural skill for fundraising in the alumni offices of both Vanderbilt University and Spring Hill College. In her first three years as director of development at MCI, McCarron surpassed fundraising goals despite being hired during a recession. McCarron also serves on the board of Camp Rap-a-Hope.
The annual Mobile Bay 40 Under 40 awards identify 40 of the area’s young professionals who will benefit the community for years to come with their leadership, professional excellence and community service.
