“Carey Sojka trained over 275 of our clinical staff on how we can create a more welcoming environment for our LGBTQ+ patients and employees at La Clinica. The discussions and revelations that occurred during and following training were incredible. The knowledge and skill Carey shared with us was applicable, supportive for change and eye-opening.”

“Carey Jean Sojka was the co-chair for our 2019 Southern Oregon LGBTQ+ Health and Wellness Summit. Her expertise as an assistant professor of Gender Sexuality and Women’s Studies at Southern Oregon University provided essential insight into the many issues impacting members of this community. Her plenary session presentation (with Kylan Mattias de Vries, associate professor) on “Trans and Gender Non-Conforming People’s Encounters with Healthcare in Southern Oregon and Northern California” provided crucial data regarding the reality of the issue as it affects our local area. In addition, several of her students participated in our conference and task force, bringing their lived experience to this transformational work. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff and students from the SOU Trans and Queer Training Program!”
