Coalition of Occupational Therapy Advocates for Diversity
Alvernia University's Occupational Therapy program is an official member of the Coalition of Occupational Therapy Advocates for Diversity (COTAD).
Officially launched December 8, 2020, Alvernia's COTAD chapter was created by Antonia Trupio, Dana Richard, Marlena Metri, and Jenna Norris as part of their capstone project.
COTAD Chapters are designed to help occupational therapy students develop and promote diversity and inclusion within occupational therapy education programs and in the profession.
