“From Trans-50 and all my colleagues, we would like to thank you for an eye-opening, thought-provoking course.  This did not just empower us to provide the necessary support to our clients and their families, but has impacted our personal lives, allowed us to address our losses and emotions, and allowed us to do introspection and soul searching regarding our own possible biases, making us better at what we do. The support and encouragement from you and all the presenters were much appreciated and we will miss the fun we had during our Zoom sessions. The practical sessions, although new and challenging, equipped us to face these challenging discussions with patients and families with more confidence.”
