Gronski Appointed to the Commission on Practice
Meredith Gronski, OTD, OTR/L, has been appointed to the Commission on Practice (COP) of the AOTA Representative Assembly (RA). The COP serves AOTA by promoting the quality of occupational therapy practice and developing practice standards for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants relative to provider and consumer needs. The COP also identifies the need for and develops, interprets, and periodically reviews and revises standards, guidelines, and other official documents related to occupational therapy practice.
“I am excited for the opportunity to advocate for the highest quality, evidence-based and authentic OT practice with the bonus of learning from some of the most masterful clinicians and advocates from across the nation,” Gronski says. “Truthfully, working in the Program of Occupational Therapy inspires greatness. I am surrounded by world-renowned leaders, scientists, and educators. I feel like this is my chance to step up.”
