Message from the Philadelphia ALA Chapter President

We hope you’re staying healthy and safe.  While these are certainly challenging times, remember that you’re not alone!  Your #PhilaALA family is here to help.  We are offering many virtual education sessions as well as some creative virtual social events to help keep us all connected.

Remember to take time for yourself.  Go outside.  Breathe.  If there’s anything we can do to help support you, please reach out to me or any other Board member.

Stay healthy.  Stay safe.  Stay connected.
