The UAB Center for Exercise Medicine is focused on improving the health and well-being of children and adults of all ages through interdisciplinary research, the training of future leaders in science and healthcare, and community education based on clinical research findings. The UCEM interdisciplinary team brings together more than 160 investigators, 32 departments, and 10 schools for a multi-disciplinary approach. UAB is among the first of major academic medical centers to establish such a center. Among its activities, the Center sponsors an annual symposium.
