Yother Is SOM Diversity Nominee


 Dr. Janet Yother has been selected as the School of Medicine faculty nominee for the UAB Diversity award. This award was established to recognize the significant achievements of faculty, staff and students who have worked to develop a more culturally diverse, competent and inclusive university community.
