Building Campaign CommitteeThe SHP Building Campaign is being head up by an all-star committee of leaders from around the country who are alumni from the School of Health Professions. Nearly half of the team are current or former presidents and CEOs.
Each committee member recognizes the impact UAB has made in their career and their lives and the committee has 100 percent buy in to the capital campaign. We cannot thank the members enough for their time, their efforts and their vision. Their contributions are invaluable to this project.
