LCBA encouraging members to put a focus on individual health

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Attorneys in northwest Indiana are getting a little help taking care of themselves.

The Lake County Bar Association will be holding its first “Practice Health, Not Law Day” on June 27. Members are encouraged to use the day to schedule a medical check-up or to visit the association’s office in Merrillville for a free health screening.

Setting aside one day for personal health was the idea of LCBA president Michael Tolbert. He was going to skip his own appointment with the doctor when the news that a friend’s dad was facing a serious illness reminded him of the importance of paying attention to his health.

Tolbert, who works out daily, hopes the “Practice Health, Not Law Day” becomes an annual event.

Screenings will be offered from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the county bar office at 291 West 84th Drive, Merrillville. Tests will be done for blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and vision, along with height and weight. In addition, chair massages, stress assessments and nutrition tips will be available.
 
Walk-ins are welcome, but to guarantee a screening attorneys should make an appointment by calling the bar association at 219-738-1906.
