He also shared cultural facts and anecdotes about Taiwan and engaged in a lively discussion about education, disabilities, and vocational rehabilitation with current RMHC students, visiting Fulbright Scholar Olesya Volkova, Fulbright Faculty Advisor Dr. Darlene Demarie, and Director of RMHC and former Fulbright Scholar Dr. Chih-Chin Chou.
Dr. Wang is a professor from the Graduate Institute of Rehabilitation Counseling at the National Changhua University of Education in Taiwan. The USF RMHC is hosting five visiting scholars from his university in March as part of an ongoing partnership of cultural and scholastic exchange.
