Thursday, March 24, Dr. Winnie Dunn, professor and chair of Occupational Therapy Education, School of Allied Health, University of Kansas, will visit University of the Sciences’ campus to speak with our Occupational Therapy students. She will be presenting a talk on “Daring to be an Ecologically Authentic Therapist in the 21st Century.” Dr. Dunn is Faculty Emeritus of Sensory Integration International, has published more than 100 professional journals and book chapters, and has authored one of the definitive texts on serving children and families in the community. In 2001, she was honored as the Eleanor Clark Slagle Lecturer, the highest academic honor for OT's in the United States.
The students in the Occupational Therapy program initiated and raised all the funds for Dr. Dunn’s visit. Additionally, they have invited local clinicians, and students from the four other OT schools in the city.
Dr. Dunn's presentation is open to the public and is free for all University of the Sciences students, staff, and faculty. There is a $20 fee for those outside the University. For more information, or if you'd like to attend, please contact Carmela Matthews at email@example.com.
