Occupational Therapy Research Expo Planned Dec. 1
November 25, 2022

The Walters State Occupational Therapy Assistant Program will host a Occupational Therapy Research Expo on Thursday, Dec. 1, from 4-7 p.m. at the Niswonger Campus in Greeneville. Occupational therapy practitioners will receive a two-hour CEU certification with attendance.
Research will be presented through a poster presentation gallery. This is a drop-in eent and those attending may come at their convenience. 
Students and faculty members will be available to discuss research or talk about the field in general.
“I am proud to show the research completed this semester by our students,” Courtney Boren, program director and occupational therapist, said. “This is also an excellent way for interested indivduals to learn about our program and occupational therapy assistant careers.”
The presentations feature evidence-based work completed by first-year and second-year students. Boren hopes students will present their research at state or regional conferences.
“This process teaches students how to critically look at evidence-based research. Those skills will guide future decisions. We want to train our students to be lifelong learners in the occupational thearpy field,” Boren said. 
For more information, contact Boren, director of the program, at 423-797-8187 or Courtney.Boren@ws.edu.
