Three RSD students present at AOTA

The Rehabilitation Science Program represented UF in New Orleans for the American Occupational Therapy Association’s 2019 Annual Conference and Expo on April 4-7. Three RSD students, Jaewon Kang, Marci Schneider and Sharon Medina, received travel awards on behalf of the RSD program and presented their research at the conference.

Jaewon and Marci were selected as “young scientists”  – they were chosen out of more than 300 research posters and completed 15-minute presentations on their work, followed by a brief Q&A. Sharon also presented multiple posters during the conference.
