This student organization consists of doctor of occupational therapy and pre-occupational therapy undergraduate students, and addresses issues surrounding diversity and inclusion in the field of occupational therapy (OT). The group was honored for their work over the past year, including development and implementation of a Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Mentorship Program between OT clinicians and OT students within the community.
On behalf of the Department of Occupational Therapy, I want to express our deepest sympathy to the families and friends of the eight people, including six women of Asian descent, who were shot to death last week in Atlanta, Georgia.
