Meetings


Join the Be Well MLA Community

The Be Well MLA initiative promotes wellness and well-being among members of the Medical Library Association. Every month, MLA members are invited to participate in the Be Well Wednesday wellness series. In these sessions, MLA members and guests will share lessons learned, strategies, and tips about a variety of wellness topics. 

All MLA members are invited to join the Be Well MLA Community where you may access session recordings and resources.

The MLA Statement of Appropriate Conduct applies to all MLA members, nonmembers, invited guests, speakers, moderators, instructors, vendors, sponsors, staff, and all others who participate in an MLA activity or event.

Sessions

Series events will run from September to April. All sessions are held on Wednesdays from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (central) on Zoom. Presentations are 30-40 minutes long, followed by a discussion with the presenters and the Be Well MLA team.
