OT Month - 2017
OT Month 2017 was well celebrated at Queen’s University, with various events and activities organized by the Rehabilitation Therapy Student Society throughout October.
To kick off the month was OT Art Attack, a chalking campaign around campus to raise awareness about occupational therapy. An info booth was held on campus later in the month, to educate passersby about occupational therapy through interactive challenges and activities.
Other activities included weekly social media challenges, and participation in the Canada-wide gOT spirit challenge. A link to the video created by the 2nd year OT students can be found here: https://youtu.be/qd35NilbK28
OT month 2017 also included giving back to the Kingston community. Custom-designed OT t-shirts were sold to students and faculty to raise money for Jack.org, with a total of $100.00 being donated. A comedy night was also held at Absolute Comedy to raise money for Lunch by George.
