OT on the Radio

Clinical Assistant Professor Tina DeAngelis, EdD, OTR/L, alumnus Bobby Walsh, and occupational therapy students Joshua Springer, Lauren Pasciuto, Tony Williams and Houman Ziai, all from the class OT 577: Historical Perspectives on Theory Based Practice, joined talk show host Derrick Ford on his radio program in April.

They discussed the field of occupational therapy and talked about the skills that the profession can offer to those dealing with addiction recovery. Ford, a behavioral health specialist, is a guest speaker in DeAngelis' class and shares the story of his recovery from addiction and homelessness. Ford has been clean for 22 years and now works to help others achieve sobriety and mentors youth in Philadelphia.
