President Ray L. Watts, M.D. is hosting UAB's Annual Fall Staff Picnic with the UAB Staff Council on the Campus Green on October 27 from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. UAB staff can get free lunch and enjoy time with fellow Blazers.

The lunch will include hot dogs, hamburgers, a veggie burger, chips, drinks, and cookies. Employees are encouraged to bring a toiletry item — toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, soap bars, and toothpaste — for Blazer Kitchen, UAB’s on-campus pantry, to help make a difference.

Staff can explore a resource fair for staff-centric resources available on campus, including the UAB Alumni, Live HealthSmart Alabama, UAB Employee Assistance and Counseling Center, UAB Bill L. Harbert Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Blazer Kitchen, and UAB IT, to name a few. UAB and Council leadership will highlight the past year's accomplishments and share updates on their vision for the future.

“Before I even knew about Staff Council, I enjoyed the Staff Picnic every year in the fall,” said Shannon Turner, the new chair of the Staff Council. “Now that I am Chair of the Staff Council, I see how hard our staff work across campus. The picnic is a big thank you to all the staff to let them know how grateful we are for all their accomplishments.”
