Tiffany Grimes

UAB Comprehensive Diabetes Center Administrative Director Tiffany Grimes, R.N., recently completed the 15th cohort of the UAB Blaze Leadership Academy.

The capstone presentations took place in April at the conference center of the Hilton at UAB hotel. From graduate program directors to seasoned faculty, there was a diverse group of leaders from around UAB present.

Blaze Leadership Academy is the UAB Learning and Development Office’s flagship program for high potential faculty and staff. Designed to support leaders who wish to grow and contribute more to UAB, the program includes developmental assessments, opportunities to build relationships with colleagues across UAB, and learning experiences centered around UAB Shared Values and Leadership Expectations.

“It was an honor to participate in Blaze Leadership Academy and to connect with an amazing group of leaders from across UAB,” said Grimes. “We were able to brainstorm and learn together throughout the academy. It was a great reminder of our shared values across UAB and how we can each support one another.”

Nominations for the 2023-2024 cohort begin in June 2023. For more information and to nominate, visit the UAB Blaze Leadership Academy website.
