Short Meeting - 6:00 pm
Practice - 6:20 pm
Bowling for score - 6:30 pm
The league is open for UAB faculty, staff, students, alumni, as well as UAB friends and family members. This league is for beginners as well as experienced bowlers, so don't be shy if this is the first time you've joined a bowling league. Invite a few friends, family members, or colleagues and attend the kick-off party on January 7 to see how you like the experience before committing to the entire season.
It's a great way to get active, meet new people, have some fun, and give back. This fall the league was able to turn in $552 to the UAB Benevolent Fund from their $1 per week charity donation.
So come on out, try a new sport and get involved in the Blazer Blowling League!

Type Two Network
Diabetes is a leading cause of heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and amputation. It also leads to more sick days and less productivity on the job. The good news is, type 2 diabetes can be prevented, and it isn’t as hard as you might think. Losing just 7% of your body weight (which translates to 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds) and exercising moderately (like brisk walking) 5 days a week can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58%. Lifestyle changes also can prevent or delay diabetes complications.
UAB Wellness is committed to helping UAB faculty, staff and their families prevent and manage diabetes. The Type Two Network is a new initiative focused on providing the health tools and resources to manage diabetes.

Hypertension affects approximately 76 million Americans and disproportionally impacts the African American community, significantly increasing the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and contributing importantly to heart and kidney failure. While even a small reduction in blood pressure can result in significantly improved outcomes, only one in three persons with hypertension is able to achieve their blood pressure goal.
Help employees get to their goal blood pressures, maintain their goal blood pressure and help other hypertensive employees get to and maintain their goal blood pressure. Help employees meet other with hypertension, talk about what it is like to have hypertension, learn how others are dealing with their disease, obtain peer and professional support.
Blood pressure screening and tracking, peer group discussions and shared experience, and mentoring individuals to get and maintain their blood pressure at the goal set by their physician or recommended by the national guidelines. These activities are guided by a health care professional.
