Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) Menu

The UAB Medicine Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is comprised of volunteers who recently have been cared for at UAB Medicine, or whose family member was cared for here. We are a voice for other patients and families working together to provide UAB Medicine’s leaders with valuable feedback and insight regarding the planning, design, and delivery of care. Our council helps identify needs or concerns of patients and their family members, creates dialogue among advisors and executives about systems and processes, and generates new ideas to improve the patient experience.
