OT Association Executive Director Visits Belmont

The Occupational Therapy (OT) faculty and third year OT doctorate students welcomed Fred Somers, executive director of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) in Bethesda, My., to Belmont on Mon., Oct. 22. Somers, who toured the Gordon E. Inman College of Health Sciences and Nursing (which houses the Occupational Therapy program), was impressed with the facility and technology in the OT labs, and he discussed with the students and faculty the role of the professional organization, its activities and the current priorities. He also answered questions from the students. “This event helped the students put a ‘face’ on our professional organization, and, hopefully, will facilitate their commitment to and involvement in AOTA,” said Dr. Susan Young, associate professor of occupational therapy and a member of the AOTA Board of Directors.
