The Quality of Life, Health & Wellness Committee has planned a full slate of events and offerings to recognize the month of May as ASB Wellness Month for Lawyers and Judges and May 2 through 6 as National Well-Being Week in Law! The goal is to raise awareness and educate lawyers and judges about wellness and the importance of self-care.
This week, national Well-Being Week in Law, there are daily resources for you to share to your social media accounts.
- May 2: Physical Well-Being
- May 3: Spiritual Well-Being
