Nov. 30 is #GivingTuesday @AOTFoundation

Giving Tuesday 2021

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 a community of philanthropic donors AOTF is able to support new OT research to generate evidence in need. More evidence means better quality of care, reduced costs, and increased efficacy. In addition to the dozens of specialty areas in which OTs work, there is now a need for OT to build evidence for COVID-19, address social injustices and support underserved populations so they can receive equitable and accessible health care service.

The only way AOTF can continue to make investments into the future of OT is with your help. Please make a gift to support essential OT grants, scholarships and research programs.

 

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
