Michigan Occupational Therapy Association

Work & Industry SIS

The Work and Industry Special Interest Section of the Michigan Occupational Therapy Association is designed to meet the needs of occupational therapy practitioners specializing in work rehabilitation across the state by providing an opportunity for networking, sharing of information, advocacy and continuing education.

Work is a life role that OTs address in a wide variety of settings and ways. We hope to increase the visibility and impact of OTs dealing with work-related issues and to make Michigan a model of this type of practice. Please join us for a lively conversation.

Meetings will be quarterly on the first Wednesday of March, June, September (or in conjunction with the Fall Conference) and December.
