|Subject:||Occupational Therapy Month|
|Please join me in co-sponsoring a resolution declaring April 2018 as Occupational Therapy Month in the state of Pennsylvania.
Both the American Occupational Therapy Association and Pennsylvania Occupational Therapy Association have declared the month of April 2018 to be known as Occupational Therapy Month.
The profession of occupational therapy helps people overcome the effects of illnesses, injuries, and any other conditions that keep them from living life to its fullest. Occupational therapy practitioners help citizens achieve participation in their favored everyday activities and occupations through the use of client-centered evaluation and intervention strategies and the services of occupational therapy are available to citizens of Pennsylvania through hospitals, rehabilitation hospitals, home health agencies, schools, clinics, psychiatric facilities, community-based service centers, and nursing homes.
The health and productivity of the citizens of Pennsylvania depend on the effective use of health care resources, including the important services of occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants.
I ask that you join me and all citizens to recognize the achievements and contributions of these valued health professionals.
