The fair will feature booths from various departments within the School of Medicine, which will showcase the diversity within each department.
Local musicians, including the Birmingham Girls’ Choir, will perform. The work of local visual and performance artists will also be showcased. Light refreshments will provide a window into the culinary stylings of international cultures.
“The Diversity Fair is a unique opportunity to celebrate all the differences that bring us together,” said Mona Fouad, M.D., senior associate dean for Diversity and Inclusion at the UAB School of Medicine. “It provides us with a creative way to recognize that diversity is everyone.”
The free event lasts from 4-6 p.m. and is open to faculty, staff and families affiliated with the School of Medicine.
