With more than 92,000 members statewide, AEA ranks among the largest associations in Alabama, and its members include past and present educators as well as school system employees.
"Very few of us plan for an injury or severe illness while traveling. But I know from first-hand experience that medical emergencies can happen when you least expect it," said Dr. Hubbert.
