A Birmingham Mom’s Ultimate Guide to September Events

0

September is almost here and fall vibes are in the air! From fall consignment sales to outdoor markets, and local story times to family festivals, there are plenty of events in Birmingham, Alabama this month. Not to mention, we’ll be kicking off our Birmingham Area Mom’s Park Hop Series! We can’t wait to connect with you and hope you enjoy these Birmingham events in September…

Ultimate Guide to September Events

The All of Us Research Program is seeking one million or more people from across the U.S. By doing so, it hopes to one day help speed up medical research. People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health. Check out our recent article on this history-making program!
