Roger participated in practicum by taking SFL 403R.

What type of projects did you work on as part of your Experiential Learning course?

I worked on a project that involves the Suicide risks and protective factors for Transgender members and ex-members of the Church.

Transcribing interviews

What did you learn unexpectedly? 

I didn't realize how much transgender individuals can suffer before they come out and how that experience can literally save their life.

How has this experience influenced your career goals? 

As a future doctor, I have a greater understanding and respect for the experiences of transgender individuals, and I will use this to be compassionate to their health needs.

What types of new opportunities are now available because of the experience?

I feel that I can relate to transgender individuals more, and I feel comfortable learning about their experiences.
