Led by Executive Director Lee Stone, EHS works to keep employees safe by providing services and knowledge needed to protect themselves, the UAB community and the environment.

Following a deliberate and inclusive process, UAB has launched its new strategic plan — Forging Ahead. President Ray Watts thanks everyone who contributed to the process that began in early 2022.

Participants can now earn double the points for physical activity. This past year, more than 5,200 employees activated their My Health Rewards account, and more than 3,900 logged enough healthy behaviors to receive a payout of $50 or more.

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a study.
