1.  Awesome Volunteers – We have amazing volunteers at UAB Pastoral Care!  These are just a few of the opportunities.

2. Psychosocial Spiritual Grand Rounds –The Pastoral Care Department is a co-sponsor of Psychosocial Spiritual Grand Rounds and is offered on the second Tuesday every other month (January, March, May, July, September, and November), for UAB Hospital employees and anyone from the community.

3. The Support Team Network. A Support Team is a group of volunteers who provide practical, emotional, and spiritual support for persons living with any health care issue whether in a hospital or at home. Training is provided by our department to teach congregations, organizations, friends, and families how to develop Support Teams for persons with any health care issue. Our train-the-trainer approach prepares persons to return to their congregation or community and start Support Teams for whomever they wish with any health care need.
