I miss meeting personally with family and friends, customers and colleagues, but I am grateful for the HIPAA-compliant video service, with which I can continue to help customers.
I found this great article written by Sarah Reichert, a behavioral clinical clinical worker in Red Wing, Minnesota, and published on the Mayo Clinic website.
