 UAB Helps You Succeed!

The community advocacy event "UAB Helps You Succeed!" began as an advocacy project in 2016 of a then PGY-2 Pediatric resident at Children's of Alabama. The Health Fair is held annually at a local elementary school and aims to target at-risk youth and their families by educating them on a variety of different health topics such as: healthy active living, gun safety, and poison prevention - just to name a few. The event also aims to support elementary school staff with charitable donations that range from school supplies, backpacks and healthy snacks for their students. The event is held annually prior to the beginning of the school year and is organized/managed by the UAB Pediatric Residents, UAB Pediatric faculty, the Coat of Arms (Community Outreach/ Advocacy Residency organization), and a variety of community sponsors.
