      Hi Hayden,

      Please contact places that you’re interested in volunteering at directly. We do not make volunteer referrals. The best bet is thinking of the places you want to be at and contacting them.

    To Whom It May Concern,
    I am an occupational therapist and am currently participating in the post-professional Doctorate of Occupational Therapy program at Quinnipiac University. I am completing my Capstone research project. My project is an online survey of parents who are currently, or within the last year, receiving occupational therapy services through the early intervention program. The survey is designed to gain a better understanding of the parents’ perceptions of the program, as well as how they are participating in those services.
    This study is conducted through an online survey and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. The study has been approved by Quinnipiac University’s Institutional Review Board.
    I am currently in the recruitment phase of my study, which is why I am reaching out to you. I am reaching out to you to determine if there is a way to reach out to your membership with a link to my survey, which I plan to launch mid-January. State association membership is an important link to the occupational therapy practitioners in the field who have access to my targeted population.
    I want to thank you so much for helping me through this process. Your time and effort are greatly appreciated and I thank you greatly. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns at all.

    Thank you again!
    Jennifer Henry, MOT, OTR/L

    My name is Lesli Wang. Unsuccessful in finding a portable toilet safety that would allow my Mom to safely use a toilet away from home, I invented the Free2Go Rollator, the first product to combine bathroom safety AND mobility. My product has been extremely well-received by OTs here on the mainland. I will be on Oahu September 20th – 27th, and would love an opportunity to meet with OTs to discuss this innovative product. If you happen to have any meetings during that time, is it possible for me to join? I would be happy to provide snacks/refreshments.

    Thank you!

    Hello OTAH

    My name is Gary. I am looking for confirmed dates for the 2017 OTAH conference. The only information posted here is from last year. I need to book tickets in the next two days if possible. What are the confirmed dates and is there a listing of workshops yet?

    I noticed last year seemed more oriented for school OT. Will there be some workshops for physical disabilities this year?
