Backpack Awareness Day

Y’all know the drill. Don’t carry heavy backpacks or you’ll break your back. The American Occupational Therapy Association, AOTA has National Backpack Awareness Day every September 19th.

Meg, AOTA rep, set up a board and fliers as well as a kitchen scale, and OT students took turns manning the area.

Our favorite guest of the day was our beloved Neal, who showed up in a gigantic crazy hat and the biggest “backpack” we’ve ever seen.


On that note, even though I haven’t done the soldering lab or Valpar, I’m stopping for the night.
Occupational therapy is officially being shut off in my brain for seven hours.
