    The Student Health and Wellness Center
    opened its newly-renovated facilities during the Fall 2015 semester, and they plan to reinvigorate their services to students during Spring 2016. One of the major changes includes bringing on a full-time dietitian for students. Amie Guice, a UAB graduate, has recently taken this position.


    “This is the first time Student Health and Wellness has offered dietitian services to students at UAB and we are very excited to have Amie on board” said Angela Stowe, director of Counseling and Student Health.

    “This is a first step in providing this important service for our students,” said Michael Faircloth M.D., the medical and laboratory director. “The vision is to help facilitate engagement in healthy behaviors for the long term health and well-being of students, while at our campus and beyond. This will involve personal consultations and, as we grow, very visible outreach events that can potentially impact many students.”
