Dr Yvette Hachtel, professor of occupational therapy, has been selected as a recipient of an AOTF/Patterson Foundation award for Community Volunteerism. This award, a joint project of the American Occupational Therapy Foundation and the Patterson Foundation of St. Paul, Minnesota, is being given for the first time this year and recognizes outstanding community volunteerism that meets the needs of disadvantaged individuals who would otherwise not be able to benefit from occupational therapy services. This award was given for the work on the Odyssey program of the Campus for Human Development in Nashville and was viewed by the selection committee as one of the applications best reflecting the overall purpose of the award. Her accomplishment will be recognized during the Award Ceremony at the Annual AOTA Conference and Exposition to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 16, 2011. In addition to this award, Dr Hachtel will receive a check for $1,000.
