Nov. 29 is #GivingTuesday @AOTFoundation

 

Let's Build Evidence Together To Improve Practice & Health!

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people to transform their communities.

 

We believe that occupational therapists should have the best and most current evidence available so they can deliver the highest quality care to their clients. Will you join us to build new evidence for occupational therapy?

Every day the demand for OT evidence rises. Thanks to the support of our donors AOTF has been able to fund new OT research that is generating evidence in need. AOTF is the only non-profit dedicated to specifically investing in OT research and if we are to continue to make the essential investments into the future of OT research we need your help.

All three of our grant programs address a critical gap that exists in OT research, the opportunity for OT scientists to obtain early-stage research funding. In addition, our grant programs are actively soliciting studies that include underserved and underrepresented populations to address social and health injustices.

 

Dr Roseann Schaaf"OTs face a number of challenges and having the best evidence for practice is paramount to improve the delivery of care. Please join me in giving to AOTF this Giving Tuesday so together we can improve lives and be sure that all persons can participate fully."

- Roseann C. Schaaf, PhD., OTR/L, FAOTA, Director, Jefferson Autism Center of Excellence, Professor, Department of Occupational Therapy Jefferson College Rehabilitation Sciences, Faculty, Farber Institute for Neurosciences, Thomas Jefferson University
