Fighting On For All ’SC ⟩
by Michelle McCarthy; Yasmine Pezeshkpour MCM ’16; and Hope Hamashige
Life in modern American society can seem awfully complicated, what with its salacious scandals, political dust-ups, too-frequent violence and wall-to-wall media coverage amplifying it all. Add to that the typical daily stressors of making ends meet, performing well on the job or in class and staying physically and mentally healthy, and there is plenty to keep any Trojan awake at night. Occupational therapy cannot solve these problems by itself, but it can help make everyday life seem a little more peaceful, pleasant and purposeful. Explore the many ways that occupational therapy helps quell the chaos, from the classroom to the campus dormitory to the clinic, to keep USC students, faculty and staff at their very best.
