Keynote Speaker

Our Conference Keynote Speaker is Kelly Jo Fulkerson-Dikuua, and her Keynote session is entitled, "Invisible Systems: Using Intersectionality to Erase Bias". This interactive talk explores the unique role Occupational Therapy Professionals have in helping people gain autonomy in their bodies and lives. Filling this critical niche in society, OTPs gain personal experience with the challenges people face when going about their day-to-day lives. In particular, OTPs see first-hand how social factors, like housing inequity or discrimination, can compound challenges in their patient's lives. This talk draws on participant experience and research-based strategies to consider the ways in which OTPs play a pivotal role in advocating for patients, mitigating bias, and building a more just society.
