E-mail from a prospective OT student: I’ve started volunteering and I LOVE it. I spend time at Courage Center a rehab center in Minneapolis, at a yoga class taught by Matthew Sanford for people with disablities. Matthew is a paraplegic himself, so the work he does is amazing. He is trying to get the medical community to help people connect their mind and bodies. I think OT is very much on that path….When you get some time, do see this videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpmbzAwL5ws. It describes his work.
Dorks, we're dorks.
This kind soul can hopefully help…he left a comment on some Neuro-IFRAH posts. 🙂
My next door neighbor (where I grew up in California) is a doctor, and she just sent me this little e-mail…short and sweet but I am always thrilled to hear a doctor speak kindly of an OT!! Yay for cool OTs!!
Lise has left a new comment on your post “HIPAA Therapy“:
Dear Karen: Your HIPAA Therapy piece is very well written, and a great example of Occupational Therapy ethics in action.
As you move through your career, you will often have opportunties, usually with a lot of pressure to do the wrong thing, to not behave ethically. It does take extra effort to do the right thing.
You make us older OTs proud of the profession.
Thank you and Welcome!
Sincerely, Lise, M.Ed., OT/L
