2021 is coming to an end and it has no doubt been a challenging year for everyone. However, First Reference would like to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support. We hope you, your families. your employees and their families always stay healthy and safe.
Instead of mailing holiday cards, we donate to an organization that helps people in need every year. Due to the pandemic, there has been increased anxiety and stress. Studies have shown that the impact of a catastrophic event on adults and youth can last longer than the event. This year, we have chosen to donate to Anxiety Canada with that in mind. This organization develops and provides programs that build awareness about anxiety disorders and help individuals manage their anxiety. To learn more about Anxiety Canada and how you can help, go to anxietycanada.com.
Due to technical issues, we cannot provide our 2021 ten most-read blog posts this year. However, we would like to thank our First Reference team and our team of regular and occasional bloggers for their contributions to the continued success of the FRTalks blog.
Please note, our office and Ask the Editor service will be closed for the holidays starting on Friday, December 24, 2021, at noon, and will reopen on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. We will not be blogging during the holidays. See you online in 2022!
