Have you or someone close to you been laid off in the chemical or pharma fields? We are looking for readers to share their experiences for inclusion in upcoming stories. We are seeking personal stories of those laid off, the psychological and financial impacts, severance issues, and ideas for helping others to make it through tough times. Confidentiality is assured; C&EN will not reveal your identity unless you consent. Please contact Assistant Managing Editor Linda Raber at L_Raber@acs.org or email@example.com; phone (202) 872-4506.
