Dear BTL,
I was the first EMU Music Therapy student to complete all four years of the program under Professor Michael McGuire who was profiled in last week’s Pride issue. I was his first graduating class in 1988 – a class of only one in which I had the luxury of completing all of my junior and senior level music therapy coursework. To this day, I credit Professor McGuire with helping me to become a more self-aware and capable person, which ultimately helped me to be a more capable therapist, more able to help others. He helped me to improve my writing skills, something that has helped me throughout my professional life. Eighteen years later, I have now changed fields and work in HIV prevention research as a U.S. Community Education Manager for the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. I continue to look back at my EMU years with fond memories, and the respect and admiration I have for Professor McGuire continues to this day. I’m thrilled to see him profiled in your publication, and I hope that many more people will have the opportunity to learn from his strong example of leadership and commitment to serving the community.
Gail B. Broder,
