Faculty to be honored by National Alumni Association

Dr. Heather Taylor, associate professor of Pediatrics and Director of Undergraduate Medical Education at the College, is being recognized by The University of Alabama National Alumni Association with the “Outstanding Commitment to Teaching” award.

Each year, four UA faculty members are honored based on their commitment to teaching and the impact they have had on students throughout their time as faculty.

“Teaching is my favorite part of my job by far,” said Taylor. “So, it is exciting to be honored for doing something I love.”

Alumni, faculty, and students are open to submit nominations.

“I had such fabulous teachers along that helped me along the way. I see teaching as my way of paying my mentors back in some way.”
