You know how I do love a good library. Alliance for Hope just announced their new online library has launched, and it’s worth bookmarking as a source for a multitude of professional materials, including strangulation resources. There is a section specific to medical; the library itself is multidisciplinary. As with many things online, be discerning in your review–not everything contained in the library is peer-reviewed or current, so caveat emptor.
And with that, I am signing off for the year. FHO will return on January 3rd with new content, including a brand new resource for the Store (it may or may not be on bruising–who can tell with these things 😉 ) and the 9th anniversary of our little nerdy site. I am going to take some time off to spend with my family, particularly my wife (whose birthday is today–happy birthday, honey), and kiddo. We’ll be traveling a bit, and throwing an end of year party to celebrate the garbage fire that was 2017 (well, it wasn’t all bad, but a good chunk of it was pretty awful). In addition to Sasha’s birthday, we have just started Hanukkah (Chag Sameach! to all my peeps); Christmas is right around the corner, our 5th wedding anniversary falls a few days after that, and then the New Year. What a whirlwind. Here’s hoping you have some fun and relaxation during the holiday season; that your days are filled with love, laughter and good food; and that for those of you struggling during what is sometimes a difficult time of year, you find peace and the inner fortitude to just keep moving forward. Thanks for spending time with us in 2017. See you in 2018!
