M4A should have its new booklet entitled "The Book" - a Guide for Help, Information, and Resources available in hard copy and electronically in the upcoming weeks. We are excited to announce "The Book" because we feel that it will assist our partners and consumers in understanding what M4A has to offer and also provide information about a wide variety of topics. 

If you would like a sneak peak of a few selected pages in the book, please click the link provided below. 

UAB is recruiting for clinical trials to use exercise with seniors and joint replacement patients. 


Two clinical trials at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Center for Exercise Medicine aim to build strength and stamina in seniors and in patients scheduled for joint replacement surgery.

The second will use exercise and a drug typically used to treat diabetes to see if the combination builds more strength and muscle mass than exercise alone in seniors.
