How You Celebrated #OTWeek2019!
Two days into OT Week 2019 and there’s already been a flood of posts celebrating and promoting the valuable work of OTs in our communities (as clinicians, academics, researchers, managers and further abroad!). We’ve had people share their team photos, stories from their OT journey, learnings to offer, information on their practice area, and why they love OT!
