Just the FACTs, 2020 Volume 6

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 6 :: Monday, August 24th, 2020

Hi, Friends!

You have a week to get your comments in for the eighth edition FACT-JACIE Standards and the second edition IEC Standards. If you see issues, please submit your suggestions.

While many states in the U.S. still have rising COVID case numbers, others are showing clear signs of decreasing. Australia and New Zealand are working on more localized outbreaks, and, if there is anything to learn from New Zealand, it is that we are all in this together. The world is so small that everyone must do their part to care for each other.

See the article about the Professional Relations Committee on ways to help each other through these unusual times, and be sure to take advantage of all the educational events. A good way to keep everyone in your program up to the 10 hours of annual education!

As caregivers, I don’t need to tell you to take good care of everyone else, but take some time today to do two things: think of someone you haven’t spoken to in a while and make that contact; and consider one thing to be thankful for. I’ll start the second part: I’m thankful to be sitting next to my spouse of 44 years having just returned from a bicycle ride in the north woods of Wisconsin. What’s yours?

Sincerely,

Dennis Gastineau
