Volunteers get outside with scouts

Take a glance around your office or clinic and you’ll find colleagues who make the world better, even outside their work at UAB.

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth-development organizations, providing programs for boys and girls that build character. Homewood’s Troop 95 is no exception.

  • Boy Scouts   Widget
  • Troop 95 networks with scout leaders from across UAB who share a passion for outdoor activities and mentoring youth, such as Yung-Tsung Hsu, DMD, professor in the School of Dentistry; Lisa Higginbotham, manager of the Benevolent Fund; Joe Swaika, project managers in Facilities Administration; Tracie Bishop, nurse manager in the UAB Heart and Vascular Clinic; and Bonnie Simmons, a medical technologist at UAB Hospital.

The UAB Reporter wants to know how people in your unit volunteer — whether it’s at a local nonprofit or in a clinic across the world. Submit a publicity request with the details and send a group selfie to reporter@uab.edu for a chance to be featured in Behind the Scenes.
