The Lou Wooster Public Health Hero Award is an annual award presented since 2007 by the Broad Street Committee of the UAB School of Public Health to an "unconventional health hero". It is named for Madam Louise Wooster, who famously cared for Birmingham's sick during the 1873 cholera epidemic. The presentation of the award coincides with National Public Health Week. Honorees are carried from UAB to Oak Hill Cemetery by horse-drawn carriage for the ceremony, held at the cemetery chapel.
