Stateside: Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022

Today on Stateside, Michigan Radio community engagement reporter Jamie Simmons joined us for a conversation about the need for more culturally competent therapists and therapists of color—and how some professionals are working to expand the field.

Plus, two education experts on how project-based learning can fill gaps in traditional education.
