As I reflect on the 30-plus years since I received a master’s degree from the hospital and health administration program in the School of Health Professions, I am reminded that any success I have experienced has been built on the foundation of my experience at the school and the personal relationships that began during my days on campus.
Though I live in Texas, my work has taken me all over the country. No matter where I am, I often connect to colleagues through the commonality of relationships to the SHP, its faculty and alumni. As the reputation of the school and its programs has grown, I have often looked to the residency pool for new talent, and I always consider a UAB degree a differentiator in any recruitment process.
My commitment to this capital campaign reflects my desire to see the school have the facilities and technology to continue to attract the highest caliber of faculty and students, which will ensure the availability of outstanding health care administrators for which it has become known.
