More than 1,000 former patients and family members from around the state and Southeast are expected to attend the April 27 reunion of “graduates” of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU)/Critical Care Nursery (CCN).
The reunion will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at UAB’s Bartow Arena. The theme this year is Team UAB. The reunion will give former patients and their families an opportunity to reconnect with the neonatologists, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, chaplains and other staff who cared for them, and it gives UAB staff the opportunity to witness the fruits of their labor while they renew acquaintances with former preemies, some of whom are now adults.
