Wellness means making thoughtful, daily choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. While in dental school, you may notice changes in your personal well-being and health due to a decrease in exercise, changed eating habits, stress or depression.
The month of September is ASDA's Wellness Month! ASDA chapters have planned several wellness-related events during this month at their respective schools. National ASDA will have weekly webinars (on topics like relationship wellness, anxiety, depression, and more), blog posts on wellness, social media posts and contests, and chapter challenges and prizes.

The Alabama ASDA chapter hopes to encourage students to be mindful of their physical and mental wellness. The week of September 11-15 will be Alabama ASDA's Wellness Week, which will lead to Alabama ASDA's Miles for Smiles 5k/Fun Run on Saturday, September 16! Miles for Smiles is a charity 5k/Fun Run that raises money for Cahaba Valley Health Care, a non-profit organization that provides quality dental care to the underserved community in Jefferson County.
