Safety for our sight is an ongoing concern. Everyone, whether doing research, maintenance, healthcare, etc., should protect their eyes. An involuntary movement of the eye, a blink, is part of several reflexes that we use to protect our eyes. Something as simple as sunglasses can help ensure that your vision remains intact and your sight uncompromised. Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV rays and reduce the risk of cataracts. They also protect the tender skin around your eyes from sun exposure.

On July 11, 2018, the DDC4: Defensive Driving Training as well as the NSC15: 15 Passenger Van Safety courses/classes will no longer be available.

You may enroll for the new course, UAB Defensive Driving (UAB_DD101), on July 11, 2018.

Each Fourth of July, many celebrate the holiday with barbeque, parties, boating, and generally having fun. It is, after all, a celebration of the country's independence. After the sun has set and the day's parties are winding down, another round of celebration cranks up by shooting off fireworks.

Enjoy the celebration of our country's independence but do so safely and responsibly. The misuse of fireworks account for a significant number of emergency room visits. Make sure you are around to see them this year and in the future.
