Earlier this month, I passed my first 100 days as senior vice president for Medicine and dean. It’s been a time of great energy and excitement for me as I have been meeting with stakeholders across the UAB Heersink School of Medicine and at our regional campuses, listening and sharing my vision for our school. I am proud of the work we’ve done so far and look forward to sharing our progress with you as I reach my first six months as dean in August.
Spring is always an exciting time because it represents renewed opportunity and growth. As the post-pandemic transition continues, we have an opportunity to address issues the health care community has confronted since before COVID-19, but that were accelerated and exacerbated by the pandemic.

March is Women’s History Month and an opportunity to reflect on the important, and too often unacknowledged, contributions women have made to medicine. Women were active practitioners of the medical arts in the ancient world, and have played a critical role as midwives and healers during the entire course of human history.

I’m very happy to present my first Dean’s Message since being appointed senior vice president for Medicine and Dean of the Heersink School of Medicine.
I’m deeply honored to have been appointed senior vice president for Medicine and Dean of the Heersink School of Medicine. 
On Friday, January 13, I was honored to speak at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration Event, hosted by the Heersink School of Medicine Office for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI).

With the momentum we have made in only a year from the historic Heersink family gift, I am excited to see more benefits and positive outcomes as we move forward.

This November, I am reflecting on gratitude. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve Heersink School of Medicine in a leadership capacity. The work we do here every day is vitally important for our patients, their families, and our communities.

A few weeks ago, I was presented with the annual UAB Medicine Pulse Survey results.

This month, I step into the interim dean role and look forward to leading in this capacity.
