UNH Occupational Therapy Students Advocate on Capitol Hill
On September 25, 2017, nineteen graduate Occupational Therapy students and OT Professor, Alexa Trolley-Hanson travelled to Washington D.C. to participate in The American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) Capitol Hill Day. Over the course of the day, the students met with their Congressmen and women and Senators to advocate for the needs of clients and the OT profession. Students discussed legislation to repeal the Outpatient Medicare Therapy Caps, promoted the Home Health Flexibility Act, and discussed health care reform. Students experienced the power of advocacy and enjoyed themselves despite the unseasonable warm temperatures.
