Two healthcare legends with strong ties to the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Health Professions were inducted to the Alabama Healthcare Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Saturday, August 25, 2014.

Harriett Holt Cloud, RD, LD, FADA, who has taught in the UAB School of Health Professions since 1976, and Michael E. Stephens, alumnus of the Master of Science in Healthcare Administration Program (Class 9), were joined by 11 others as members of the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014.

“Harriet and Mike have directly impacted the Alabama healthcare industry for more than 90 years combined so I was surprised when I first learned they were not members of the Alabama Healthcare Hall of Fame,” said UAB School of Health Professions Dean Harold P. Jones, Ph.D. “But I also realize that these two have not served healthcare so passionately for so long to receive this recognition – they simply continue to serve others because it is the right thing no matter who notices.”

Cloud, whose health career began in 1946, is the lead author of more than 40 professional articles, book reviews and book entries on pediatric and nutrition needs of children. She also authored the self-study guide for the American Dietetic Association’s continuing education credit on Feeding for the Dietetics Professional.
