Support Team Resources

At UAB Medicine, support teams are assisted by the Department of Pastoral Care’s Support Team Network, which is one of the department’s community outreach ministries. The Support Team Network is available to all people, regardless of their relationship to UAB Medicine.

You may not be able to attend a Support Team Network training event in person, so this website includes materials you can use to start and maintain a support team for someone you know and love. We encourage you to download the information, and please feel free to connect with us to ask questions or make suggestions using the email addresses, phone numbers, and websites listed below.
