All twenty second-year students selected to present at AOTA conference

Approximately 30,000 AOTA Conference presentation proposals (April 2017-Philidelphia) were submitted for review. Fewer than 3000 were selected.  The majority of those selected, were submitted by practicing OTs. We were notified last evening that every one of our twenty,  second-year students, will be presenting (at least once) at conference. In addition, all faculty and many alumni members are presenting as well. It is unprecedented that an entire class of OT students would be selected to present at a single conference. In addition, many of the manuscripts have been selected, or are being considered for publication in peer reviewed journals. I continue to feel extremely humbled and proud to teach in the JMU OT Program.
