Welcome to the Expo!
It’s me again! Back to finish up my long-winded commentary on the 2014 American Occupational Therapy Association conference in Baltimore, MD. If you didn’t check out the first part of this two-part blog post, you can find it here: https://gottabeot.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/aota-conference-2014-recap-part-i/.
This second part is going to be a bit different from the first in that it presents a more pragmatic and practical view of conference and the multitude of opportunities it presents. Again, I’m not a practicing therapist and at this point I’m barely even a student! But conference was a great learning experience and I feel like I gained some valuable knowledge while I was there that I’d like to share.
And so, I present without further ado, AOTA Conference 2014 Recap: Part II! Continue reading
Well, even almost a week after conference I’m still basking in the glow and wishing I could go back. But I’m taking comfort in the fact that hopefully I will be headed to Nashville for the 2015 conference next year!
The following blog post is the first half of a two-part post on my conference experience. This first part will cover my own personal experiences and duties as a conference volunteer and “junior attendee.” In the second part, which is coming soon, I will discuss more of the pragmatic and practical aspects of conference-going (at least as I experienced them).
So if you’re ready, I’m ready! AOTA Conference Recap: Part I – GO!
My Life as a Volunteer
With this blog, it is my goal to add new perspectives and information to the wealth of knowledge that is out there about the wide and wonderful field of occupational therapy. To that end, I’m first going to discuss my experience as a conference volunteer – something I was unable to find ANY information about prior to attending!
My time in Baltimore came to an end this past Friday, and I was so sad to leave the city and all of the awesome people I met while I was there. I have a ton of pictures and stories to post, but I’m currently trying to get caught up on all the homework and duties I left behind for three days!
So while I’m busy gathering myself for the coming week and writing a post that’s coherent enough to go up here, I’ll just leave you with a few pictures I took! There are plenty more on the way, but I hope for now these will give you a taste of my experience at my first ever AOTA conference!
