A huge thanks to fellow recreation professional Jaclyn E. for the following submission:
“Here are some Edmonton Zone resources that I use on a regular basis: (Here is a document that lists many more disease-specific associations)”

While in our certificate program (first year), we had a project where we were to create resource binders. I wish that I had the idea of this blog then, but alas, I have three binders full of paper, to which I’ve only looked at once or twice since they were created. I’ve been religiously adding to them, but I’ve not had the time to organize, or even review what I’ve collected over the last two years. I would like to eventually have my entire resource binder’s content within this blog, but I’ll to be honest, that transfer will take awhile (aka: free time).
The course opened yesterday, 25th July, 2017 – I just started this morning!

Though I realize this isn’t the most active blog at this point (HINT, HINT, I’m looking for people, places, or things to post about!!), however, I’ve finally had a minute to sit down and focus on turning on the subscription service for this blog (yes, it really was simple, but learning WordPress is like learning a new program…)!
