AOTF is the nation’s leading non-profit investing in new OT research and the future OT workforce. For almost 60 years AOTF has been the only national organization committed to supporting OT scientists building new evidence, providing research resources for clinicians, offering scholarship assistance for OT students and disseminating new knowledge to the profession. All of this work is vital to strengthening occupational therapy, to raising its visibility, and improving the delivery of care and all of this critical work is accomplished thanks to the philanthropic support of a community of donors and volunteers.

This presentation will cover the mission, investments and impacts of AOTF and opportunities for OT to engage with our work.

This webinar will be recorded for later viewing if you are unable to make the webinar.
