An innovative health hub for students UAB's new Student Health and Wellness Center opened earlier this month in a 23,000-square-foot space in the heart of campus. The facility is equipped to handle students' medical, counseling and developmental needs in one place, including a full range of primary care services.
Bringing diverse teams of practitioners together helps "create a more seamless delivery of care" for students and enhances the ability to consult with colleagues, said Jake Baggott, executive director of Student Health and Wellness. The daily interaction will also foster the development of innovative strategies to improve student health.
