2021 TNOTA Annual Conference & Student Track Theme: “Occupational Therapy: Meaningful Connections Through Meaningful Occupations”

2021 TNOTA Annual Conference & Student Track is September 10-12 in Nashville! Helping individuals participate in their meaningful occupations is the core of occupational therapy. In the world today, it can be difficult to make meaningful connections that have a great impact on our lives, particularly in this season of adversity and isolation. Occupational therapy can help individuals make connections through their occupations that will foster growth in all aspects of life. This year’s Conference & Student Track theme, “Occupational Therapy: Meaningful Connections Through Meaningful Occupations” will promote meaningful connections as we learn and grow together to help others with their meaningful occupations.


Call for papers for TNOTA's Annual Conference & Student Track is open from April 1-May 24, 2021.
