Barco to Receive Roster of Fellows Award

Congratulations to Peggy Barco, OTD, OTR/L, SCDCM, CDRS, who will receive the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Roster of Fellows Award at AOTA’s 2017 Annual Conference & Centennial Celebration in Philadelphia, Pa. The purpose of the Roster of Fellows is to recognize occupational therapists who have made a significant contribution to the continuing education and professional development of members of the Association through their special skills and knowledge in therapeutic practice, education, and/or research. Dr. Barco is being recognized for her contributions to the “Advancement of Driving Rehabilitation Practice.”

“This is a very special honor to receive and something I never anticipated would happen when I began my career in occupational therapy several years ago. Choosing this profession was one of my best decisions and it has provided me a wealth of opportunities, new adventures and lasting friendships,” shares Barco. “I could not have accomplished this without the support and collaboration of the wonderful professionals and students I am honored to know and work with.”

The Roster of Fellows Awards will be presented during the Annual Awards & Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, April 1, from 5:45 – 6:45 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The ceremony is open to the public and conference attendance is not required. For more information on the conference, please visit
