Monthly social media chats with the ASBMB

January

Wellness

Thursday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m. Eastern

Since 2019, the January issue of ASBMB Today has been dedicated to wellness. In a 2021 editor's note, Comfort Dorn, ASBMB Today's managing editor, wrote: "We asked our readers to share their strategies for keeping their minds and bodies healthy in the pressure-cooker world of scientific research. We received wonderful, varied, heartfelt responses that we shared in these pages." We'll continue this tradition in 2023. To highlight the issue and learn more about authors' experiences, we'll be hosting a LinkedIn chat in January. Join the conversation with #ASBMBWellness. Stay tuned for details, and in the meantime, enjoy these past issues:
