  1. Thank you for the information Ms. Parker. Is there a website or publication where I can find your body of work? Or is your blog the primary forum that you are using? I am the owner/operator of a nursing homes website with directory information, news articles and nursing jobs. I would love to read more of your material and spread the knowledge to my users. Thank you.
