or Twitter and share the events of my day with all 100+ or so of my closest
''friends''. It's so very rewarding to watch a post collect ''likes'' and ...

a professional physician assistant. This is the perfect time for a Quarterly
Check-Up to examine some of the biggest lessons over the last three months
