Florence Clark, associate dean, chair and Mrs. T.H. Chan Professor of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, delivered the 2016 Thelma Cardwell Lecture at the University of Toronto on June 22. Her lecture, entitled “Occupational Therapy as Life Design: Fortifying Health and Well-Being through the Course of Life,” discussed The USC Well Elderly Study Research Program and Lifestyle Redesign® research intervention model.
The lecture, founded in 1997, is named in honor of Thelma Cardwell, the founder of the Canadian Occupational Therapy Foundation and the first occupational therapist and first woman to be President of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists. The annual lecture recognizes distinguished scholars and practitioners who have made a significant influence on the profession of occupational therapy and serves as an opportunity to join practitioners, administrators, students and academics to celebrate the vision and contributions of the occupational therapy profession.
