Healing Words volunteers come from all areas of college life—UAB Baseball players, Spanish-speaking students from SALSA (Spanish And Latino Student Association), Early Medical School Admission Program (EMSAP) students, and students with majors ranging from chemistry to English to biology to theatre.

Healing Words volunteers must attend an orientation from The Literacy Council that highlights innovative ideas about how to capture and sustain a listener’s attention.
