Health Policy Webinar: What We Do & Issues We Address

AOTA’s Public Affairs Division supports the Association's strategic goals and objectives through policy development and advocacy on behalf of AOTA and the occupational therapy profession for the benefit of the public. We do this by proactively educating and persuading stakeholders, including policy makers, payers, and other professionals about the distinct value of occupational therapy.

The Division is composed of three key groups: (1) State Affairs and Health Policy, (2) Federal Affairs, and (3) Regulatory Affairs. 

Division staff recently recorded a series of presentations to provide an overview of the work we do and the issues that we address.
