Andi Mathews fullAndrea Mathews | Program Manager, PBRN, School of Dentistry

Andrea Mathews has been with UAB since 2002, when she was hired to develop the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) in the UAB School of Dentistry. She now works with six regions, more than 40 network staff and a six-member executive committee.

She was named the October 2013 Employee of the Month for her ability to work smarter and harder and to secure funding for the project.

"[Andrea] has that rare combination of attention to detail combined with a personable and friendly attitude that makes all of us in this large national network truly feel like a team," says Cyril Meyerowitz, D.D.S., professor at the University of Rochester's Eastman Institute for Oral Health and regional director for the National Dental PBRN.
