  • Interview someone in a healthcare related field?

    Hello everybody,
    As part of a school assignment I was asked to interview someone who was in the healthcare related field (such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, coaches etc.) and I was wondering if anyone on this forum, who works in a healthcare related field, would be willing to answer a few questions. The questions shouldn't take that long, about 20-25 minutes max. I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you for your time.
