THE STORY:


The AOTF St. Catherine's Challenge is a student-led initiative to support the profession of occupational therapy by raising funds for occupational therapy research grants provided by the American Occupational Therapy Foundation. By supporting occupational therapy research, you are helping expand support for effective treatment methods that can improve treatment outcomes for patients in the United States and across the globe. The AOTF provides funding for research across multiple domains including mental health, pediatrics, geriatrics, and physical disabilities. Moreover, with pending NIH cuts it is imperative to support rehabilitation sciences. Research not only provides better care for patients, but also increases job security for the occupational therapy profession. 


This is the third year that Columbia University will participate in the St. Catherine's Challenge. Last year we won the challenge by raising over $8,000. This year we would like to hit five digits; therefore, our goal is $10,000! We know this money will go on to support evidence based rehabilitation practices and fund some of the best scientists our field has to offer. As members of Columbia University’s Programs in Occupational Therapy, we SEE the need, we MEET the need, we EXCEED the need! Thank you so much for your support.
