LIU Brooklyn’s Occupational Therapy program is participating in its first St. Catherine’s Challenge!
What is the St. Catherine’s Challenge?
A student led fundraising initiative to support the profession of occupational therapy by raising funds for occupational therapy research grants provided by the American Occupational Therapy Foundation.
The Challenge began in September 2013 when honor society students from St. Catherine University learned the importance of using effective treatment methods that are supported by research evidence. These students were seeking to increase awareness on occupational therapy research that guides practice. They challenged OT students at universities across the United States to a take on the challenge, create their own fundraisers, engage their communities, and join together in a friendly competition in support of AOTF's mission.
44 schools participated in 2018’s challenge and LIU Brooklyn has joined for 2019. Help us reach our goal and advance our unique and essential field!
