The UAB Employee of the Month/Year Program seeks to recognize and reward those staff members whose contributions best exemplify these traits. In doing so, we not only show appreciation for outstanding individual achievement, but more importantly, we communicate to all, publicly and consistently, the significance of these values to the University. Included among the values essential to achieving UAB’s mission and vision are Accountability, Collaboration, Service, Commitment, Diversity, Can-do Attitude and Ethical Conduct.
Andrea Mathews, program manager for Behavioral and Population Sciences in the UAB School of Dentistry, has been named Employee of the Year. Mathews was chosen from the 12 Employee of the Month award winners named this past fiscal year. An invitation-only presentation ceremony and reception honoring her with the highest non-academic employee award will be held later this fall.
Mathews helped develop the National Dental PBRN, the first statewide dental practice-based research network in the nation. Since 2002 the network has received more than $94 million in funding, and will soon involve more than 5,000 U.S. dental practitioners providing general dental and specialty care in a wide range of clinical settings. Mathews works with six regions, more than 40 network staff and a six-member executive committee to ensure that all parties are connected to the administrative base and comply with the requirements and goals of the project.
