Community support is an essential component of our plan to ensure sustainability of our programs. Our Development Team works with all of EAB's stakeholders to coordinate fundraising and social events, grant writing, direct partnerships, and media production.
Each month, EAB hosts multi-disciplinary screenings at various locations around the Birmingham area. In addition to finding out clinical values like blood pressure and blood glucose, participants receive a myriad of health information tailored to their needs and interests. We partner with other UAB professional schools, such as Dental and Optometry, to provide additional services as well.
Every Wednesday, medical student volunteers staff an actue-care, free clinic at M-POWER Ministries, offering a critical lifeline to care to those who need it most. This partnership will continue to be a core component of our community outreach. We are excited to announce the upcoming opening our own free clinc in Downtown Birmingham at the Church of the Reconciler. More information will be released in Fall 2012.
Diabetes is a growing epidemic in Alabama that disproportionately affects underserved communities. With that in mind, the Diabetes Education Initiative volunteers teach classes each week on Tuedays at M-POWER Ministries. We also partner with the Health Careers Opportunities Program (aka Summit Scholars) at UASOM to mentor middle and high school students through math and science instruction.
