2014 Paraquad Shine the Light Award honoree

The Program in Occupational Therapy was selected as a 2014 Paraquad Shine the Light Award honoree for our ongoing commitment to accessibility for our team members, students, and the community. We were nominated by Kerri Morgan, MSOT, OTR/L, ATP, who serves as a member at large on the board of directors at Paraquad. The award was presented on Thursday, November 6 at The Chase Park Plaza. Paraquad is a nonprofit organization in St. Louis, Mo., whose mission is to empower people with disabilities to increase their independence through choice and opportunity.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized by Paraquad, whom we actively partner with to promote participation and engagement in our community,” says Associate Director of Professional Programs Steve Taff, PhD, OTR/L, who accepted the award for the Program. “By providing a highly accessible environment for all, we break down barriers and best enable our students, faculty, and staff to achieve their personal, professional, and academic goals. Our mission has, and always will be, to advance human health by enhancing people’s participation in everyday life activities so they can live, work and participate in the activities most meaningful to them.”

As part of the award presentation, a special video was produced highlighting the many ways the Program provides opportunities for people with disabilities to live, work and participate in the community.
