USC Chan at Conference

The faculty, staff, students and alumni of the USC Chan Division were strongly represented at the Occupational Therapy Association of California’s 40th Annual Conference, hosted October 27–30, 2016, in Pasadena, California. With three award winners, 70 speakers/presenters and a Trojan Family reception at the Hilton Pasadena, this conference was certainly one to remember! Happy 40th Birthday, OTAC!
