Connection. Inspiration. Wellness. The Be Well MLA initiative invites you to join us for a community-centered, virtual opportunity. Our upcoming session on November 15, 2023, at 1:00 p.m., central time, Gifts and Gratitude: Sharing the Gift of Creativity, is about acknowledging our unique talents and the creative resources within each of us. Together, we'll explore the art of giving creatively and the power of gratitude.

Please accept our invitation to pause, participate, and care for yourself. Join us for this fantastic opportunity during a month when many people reflect on gratitude and how to show gratitude to themselves and others.
