Last week, the MSOT and PhD students in our lab had the opportunity to meet virtually with their senators and representatives through the Wisconsin OT Association (WOTA) Day at the Capitol!
Over 150 OTs, OTAs and OT students participated in this year’s annual event. Our students were able to put their advocacy skills to work, discussing two pieces of legislation that would continue to support the OT profession and all of our clients. Sen. Joan Ballweg of District 14 contacted the WOTA office after her meeting and offered to author the “compact license” that would allow OTs to practice across state lines.
Huge advocacy win for our profession – YOUR voice matters!
