Happy Occupational Therapy Month!
March 30, 2010
Did you know April is Occupational Therapy Month? How am I celebrating, you ask? Well, let me tell you!
Today, we are tabling on campus to promote awareness of the profession. We are handing out clementines (a healthy snack) and wishing people a happy OT month! If you’re reading this blog because you’re thinking about doing OT, I’m sure you’ve come across people who have no idea what OT is! My grandma, for instance, really has no idea — I tried to tell her but I think it may be a lost cause. It’s important that we advocate for our profession so we become a powerful profession of the future!
We printed up big buttons for people to wear. Here are the slogans on the buttons:
What is OT?
An occupational therapist loves me.
OT: Living Life to its Fullest
OTs Fight On!
I Heart OT
OT was my idea.
We’ll also be supporting events such as Global Health Awareness Week, Earth Day, and Disability Awareness Week throughout the month on campus!
What are you doing for OT month? Spread the word!
