Introducing spOTlight: The NYU OT Department Blog

Welcome to spOTlight, the official blog of the NYU Steinhardt Department of Occupational Therapy. We look forward to bringing you Department announcements, faculty profiles, alumni news, and regular highlights from our current students.

Take a look around! We’re featuring a welcome message from our new Department Chair, Dr. Kristie Patten Koenig. In this short video, Dr. Koenig addresses faculty, students and alumni, relating her vision for the future of occupational therapy at NYU Steinhardt.

Also—make sure to check out Associate Professor Yael Goverover’s most recent research project, investigating whether multiple sclerosis patients benefit from self-generated therapy. Dr. Goverover’s research may have important implications for OTs specializing in MS.

And don’t forget to read about how one group of NYU OT students traveled to South Africa to share their talents with international populations through a community based collaboration with the OT department at the University of Cape Town.

Let us know what you think of the blog! Questions, comments and ideas for future stories can be submitted to NYU Alumni, we would love to hear from you. Please share your news!
