The 2017 NOTA Conference was a great success! The Conference was held in Omaha at Creighton University on Friday, February 24th and Saturday, February 25th, 2017. The annual conference is just one of the many ways that NOTA strives to ensure your membership continues to be valuable to you both personally and professionally!

We had 111 occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and students participate in the conference in addition to the many volunteers, 13 vendors, 4 sponsors, and 10 poster presenters. We were excited to have such great attendance!

Students had a special opportunity to have a pre-conference session with Amy Lamb, OTD, OT/L, FAOTA and snacks sponsored by Nebraska Methodist College. Conference then kicked off with a Pre-Conference “Parenting with Physical Impairments”. A panel of parents with disabilities shared their personal stories, and providers shared strategies and resources for healthcare professionals. Friday evening a NOTA Friends reception provided a great opportunity for networking and conversation as well as visiting with vendors. The evening capped off with a powerful keynote “OT Soaring into the Future” by Amy Lamb, OTD, OT/L, FAOTA, and President of the American Occupational Therapy Association, Associate Professor of Occupational Therapy at Eastern Michigan University, and owner of AJLamb Consulting.

Saturday held another day full of activity and energy! The morning kicked off with a special breakfast opportunity to speak with our NOTA lobbyist Cheryl Frickel, OTD, OTR/L and RA Dr. Melissa Kimmerling EdD, MOT, OTR/L . Three tracks were offered in the morning and afternoon sessions. The morning tracks available were “Expanding Occupational Therapy by using Telehealth”, “Outpatient Interdisciplinary Approach to Feeding, Eating, and Swallowing in the Complex Pediatric Patient ”, and “Therapeutic Exercise Prescription”. Afternoon tracks available were: “Integrating Themes of Hope and Evidence-based Practice in Alzheimer's Care ”, “Mindfulness & Zentangle: Science, Health & Happiness....even when you think you don't have time!”, and “What Does it Take For a Woman to Regain Her Independence? It Takes Occupational Therapy: A Look at Women's Health and Occupational Therapy ”. Afternoon networking with vendors and poster presentations as well as NOTA Award and door prize presentations made for a full day! We also honored several individuals. Lauren Robins OTD, OTR/L, CLT was named Practitioner of the Year, Janel Meis, OTD, OTR/L was named Contributor of the Year, and Brady Moran was named Occupational Therapy student of the Year.
