I have enjoyed the last ten
months in my position as
president. We have been
very busy creating new
committees and programs
for our members. I would
welcome any feedback
from our members on how
you think it is going. This
has been a difficult year for
all of us, but as
occupational therapists we
are resilient and can adapt
to changes in healthcare. I
have seen this in various
ways this year from
colleagues, practitioners,
and students . Thank you
for all you do for
Occupational Therapy and
our clients in Wisconsin!
