The UABSON currently operates three nurse managed centers. These centers provide community based primary healthcare services under the leadership of our advanced practice faculty members. These locations target the underserved population of the Birmingham area and emphasize health education, health promotion, and disease prevention.
The City of Birmingham’s Good Health Program, led by UABSON Faculty, strives to promote a culture of wellness within the city’s 4,700 member workforce through health screens, health awareness efforts, intervention programs, data management, and program evaluation. This collaboration marked its 23rd consecutive year of partnership in 2014.
The primary goal of the Alabama Statewide AHEC Program is to reduce health disparities by improving the quantity, diversity, distribution and quality of Alabama’s healthcare workforce. By linking the academic health science center at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) with other health profession schools and community partners, Alabama’s primary care workforce will improve. Cynthia Selleck, PhD, RN, Associate Dean for Clinical and Global Partnerships, serves as the Program Director for the five-year, HRSA-funded, Alabama Statewide AHEC Program.
