In these unprecedented times, it is hard to know how to handle day to day life, let alone the holidays. With Thanksgiving just over a week away, we decided to post some tips for successful holidays.

We also want to pass along some exciting news — Zoom is offering Free unlimited calls on Thanksgiving. Normally Zoom allows 40 minutes for free, so I imagine a lot of people will be happy to learn they can Zoom with their family for free all day long on Thanksgiving.
Our goal here is to provide you with information so you can make an informed decision and do what is best for you. We at Patient Advocate Alliance wish you the happiest of holidays.
