Writes and produces stories for UAB News and social sites, including UAB This Week, a weekly recap of happenings around campus.

This week is all about working together — to combat a physician shortage, accelerate medical breakthroughs and promote college readiness.
It's all about excellence. UAB Hospital retains its place on Becker's list of the nation's 100 best. Our Comprehensive Transplant Institute celebrated 50 years of life-giving care. And UAB Athletics begins upgrades for soccer that will enable Birmingham's pro soccer team to make our home field theirs.
This week, it was all about students coming and going. Reaching out to potential students on National College Decision Day. Students doing a community service during their move out. And a graduate who got a surprise in camouflage on her big day.
This week, we're looking forward — to the beginning for more than 2,100 graduates, a new opportunity to promote regional economic development, improved understanding of science and the blooms that bring bees and butterflies.
More than 2,000 students will receive diplomas during next week's commencement. Get ready to celebrate the 50th anniversary of UAB's first transplant and the more than 14,000 since. And engineering students put their skateboard skills to the test.
UAB announced plans for a new medical office building in Hoover and a new track and field venue on campus. Blazers marched to Take Back the Night for survivors of sexual assault and a cybersecurity expert shows you how to make your Facebook account more secure.
UAB Giving Day is April 12; Campus Rec is hosting Walk It Out on Wednesdays; catch a performance of UAB Theatre's "Hairspray" April 11-15 and the Spring Game will be held tomorrow at Legion Field - football season tickets are on sale now.
Softball competition takes a backseat to compassion, fads lose to moderation in the healthy diet debate and UAB wins a LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader designation from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
This week graduate programs get high marks in US News rankings, teens can apply to volunteer with UAB Medicine, see student art in a juried exhibit in AEIVA and the beach volleyball team hits the road.
This week med students met their match, Football invites UAB employees for fun and food, summer camps are accepting signups and the provost prepares to exhibit her paintings.
