OT Grand Rounds

by Michele Berhorst  •  January 23, 2019

Bobbi Pineda, PhD, OTR/L, will be our OT Grand Rounds speaker on Wednesday, February 13. Her talk is titled "Supporting and Enhancing NICU Sensory Experiences."

Neonatal therapy is a rapidly growing field. Advancements in medical technology have improved survival rates, yet developmental consequences of preterm birth persist. Occupational therapists are often consulted for neuroprotective strategies to support high-risk infants in the tenuous NICU environment. Dr. Bobbi Pineda will share her research on the development and evaluation of a comprehensive sensory-based program that can drive brain development, promote parent-infant interaction and optimize neurodevelopmental outcomes.

OT Grand Rounds was launched in honor of the Program in Occupational Therapy’s 100th anniversary in 2018. Each presentation will have a research, educational or clinical focus on how occupational therapy impacts health care.

This presentation is eligible for one (1) contact hour. Reception to follow in lobby.
