"The members gained information about maintaining their health ... [and] began to see coherence in establishing healthy on-going practices ... Our members and staff shared freely with the BTG students and felt they were contributing to the education of professionals who wanted to be more understanding."

"I think what I learned that will most directly benefit my patients is to always think about where a person comes from and what influences guide their actions and decisions ... I have asked myself, 'How do we fix those influences in order to help our patients?'"
