Contact: Sabrina Hilton, WOTA Legislative Chair, (314) 630-2638

More than 200 Occupational Therapists will visit the Wisconsin State Capitol on Thursday, October 12, 2017, to speak with legislators, and discuss the impact Occupational Therapy makes on patients every day. The event, sponsored by the Wisconsin Occupational Therapy Association, is designed to raise awareness of the life-changing services provided by Occupational Therapists.

“OTs work with infants, adults, disabled populations and everything in between, to help them participate fully in daily tasks and events. We are proud of our profession, and proud of the lives we change, and even save, as we provide this support to our patients,” says Sabrina Hilton, Legislative Chair for the Wisconsin Occupational Therapy Association.

The event begins with a 1 p.m. meeting in the Assembly Chambers. From there, OTs will visit their legislators and explain more about what they do, and how they could be impacted by current legislation.

The Wisconsin Occupational Therapy Association (WOTA) is a professional organization that focuses on promoting the profession and professional services of Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants, as well as the education of Occupational  Therapy Students in the State of Wisconsin.
