Young Supporters Board

The Young Supporters Board of the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB was established in 2006 to introduce the next generation of Alabamians to the importance of cancer research and awareness. The board is comprised of up-and-coming professionals between the ages of 22 and 40, all of whom have been touched by cancer.

The Young Supporters Board hosts projects and fundraisers throughout the year, including its signature event Fiesta Ball, which raises funds to support the board’s Young Investigator Grants, which fund the research of early-career scientists at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center.
