Alex graduated from La Trobe University around a year ago and is about to finish his first speech pathology job, working in inpatient geriatric evaluation and management in Melbourne.
This episode offers insights into being a speech pathology student, starting out in the profession, working with people with dementia, and being a male in a predominantly female profession. Something for everyone.
Apologies for the audio problems – Alex sounds a bit muffled, I had some echoing, we had some background noise. As we all know, communication is not always perfect or easy. I did my best to fix it up as much as I could.
