Alumni and students gather at 2017 AOTA ConferencePosted: April 10, 2017
A.T. Still University (ATSU) students, faculty, and alumni gathered for a reception during the 2017 American Occupational Therapy Association conference in Philadelphia. The reception was hosted by Ann Lee Burch, PT, MPH, EdD, vice dean of ATSU’s Arizona School of Health Sciences and Jyothi Gupta, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, chair of the occupational therapy department.
The hosts shared the following updates:
- To support continued growth, the University has purchased three additional buildings on the Arizona campus. Later this month, the A.T. Still University Osteopathic Medicine Center will open in one of the newly acquired buildings. The facility will allow ATSU-SOMA students, fellows, and faculty to serve the community, with a special focus on caring for children with special needs.
- Join ATSU-ASHS for a free webinar hosted by Beth Hathaway, OTD, OTR/L, and Lauren Boucher, OTD, OTD/L, ATS, to learn more about the benefits of pursuing a post-professional doctorate of occupational therapy. Webinars will be hosted on April 26 and May 18 at 7:00 p.m. EST. Please contact Bernadette Mineo to register.
- Reaccreditation is approaching, and alumni are needed to serve on the advisory board, providing different perspectives to help ATSU-ASHS prepare for the process. If you are interested, contact Rachel Diamant.
- The residential master’s program now has 38 students, and the doctoral program has 18. The need for fieldwork education sites is greater than ever. If you are aware of opportunities for students to work and learn in the field, please contact Mary Greer.
