Aging in Place: Best Science for Best Practice in Occupational Therapy
The Department of Occupational Therapy hosted the fifth annual, but first virtual, Sandra Edwards Colloquium on February 6, 2021. The theme for this year’s Colloquium was “Aging in Place: Best Science for Best Practice in Occupational Therapy.” Our keynote speaker was Dr. Susan Stark from Washington University.
Dr. Stark conducts clinical, translational research to promote successful aging in place at home, and prevent falls. She promotes the participation of older adults with functional limitations through the provision of intensive, tailored environmental interventions that are designed to enhance the performance of daily activities.
This annual series is funded by an endowment from Sandra Edwards and her husband Al Garcia. Sandra Edwards is a native of Gainesville, Florida, and a 1965 graduate of the UF Occupational Therapy program.
