This week, leaders from across UAB gathered to honor Stuart J. Frank, M.D., at the naming dedication of the Stuart J. Frank, M.D. Conference Room in the Boshell Diabetes Building (BDB). Hallways were lined with cherished colleagues, friends, and mentees.

Department of Medicine Executive Vice Chair and Professor Emeritus, Stuart J. Frank, M.D., joined UAB in 1991 and has had an illustrious three-decade career as a physician-scientist.

Colleagues describe Frank’s legacy at UAB both inspirational, compassionate, and jovial. Frank has seen the leadership of many deans, division directors, and administrators. He feels like it has been an honor to watch UAB expand over the years, and he looks forward to continuing to watch its growth.

Though his research responsibilities have now become more advisory, Frank will maintain his thriving endocrinology clinic at the Birmingham Veterans Affairs (VA) medical center. He will also continue serving in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, having served as its Division Director from 2007-2018.
