1 c o n n e c t i o n C o n t e n t s Message from the President Welcome, Jeffrey Reznick Leadership Mentoring Program..3 Third Habits Conference Scholarship Winners Leveraging Resources and Securing the Future Financials THE AMERICAN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY FOUNDATION VOL. 14, NO. 1 Special Edition a n n u a l r e p o r t Building for the future defined our work in 2006 Dear Colleagues, The Foundation made significant progress during the past year pursuing our vision of a society that supports social justice and the rights of all people to participate in occupations that are both meaningful and contribute to health. We work every day through the AOTF Institute for the Study of Occupation and Health to fulfill this vision and increase its relevance for the healthcare marketplace of the future. Collaboration with our professional partners, AOTA and NBCOT, is at the very core of the Foundation s commitment to assure that our collective priorities are in sync, avoiding duplication of effort and guaranteeing responsible and effective stewardship over the Foundation s resources. Here are just a few of our highlights: AOTF partnered with AOTA to launch a Leadership Mentoring Program for occupational therapy faculty to stimulate leadership within the academic community. This is a most pressing professional priority as faculty vacancies surge and our senior academic leaders prepare for retirement. AOTF/AOTA Leadership Fellowships provided 18 occupational therapy faculty members an opportunity to participate in this unique mentoring program. It will prepare them for increasing levels of responsibility within their academic communities, be they junior faculty members working towards tenure; program chairs or faculty seeking increased administrative roles; or assistant deans pursuing dean status. The AOTF and AOTA governing Boards approved the creation of a new interagency Research Advisory Panel. Each organization will appoint up to five panel members to collaboratively guide the profession s research agenda to advance science and promote research of the highest quality in occupational therapy. At the request of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, AOTF generated recommendations for an Ad Hoc Group report concerning a national emergency preparedness plan for occupational therapy. This plan includes strategies to coordinate efforts of non-governmental organizations, national and local governmental agencies, other health and rehabilitation professionals, and community volunteers. AOTF instituted a new online scholarship application through the AOTF Web site for 55 scholarships to be awarded in May This online format facilitated both the application and review process and has resulted in a significant increase in scholarship applications. AOTF expanded the capacity of the Doctoral Network to support individuals engaged in doctoral education by moving the DocNet listserv to the AOTA listserv software. In addition, the DocNet is planning to increase mentoring and exchange of ideas in 2007 by sponsoring a series of online discussions titled Strategies for Success. AOTF will join forces with AOTA and NBCOT to host the second annual reception for new practitioners and recent graduates to learn about volunteer leadership opportunities with the organizations. The reception will be held at the AOTA annual conference in St. Louis. Continued on page 2

Reznick I wish I could fully convey my optimism and excitement about the future of occupational therapy and the Foundation. Each year, I am pleased to report AOTF s continuing efforts to generate knowledge and advance our science, encourage occupational therapy leaders, fund education, and focus on the future of the profession. But more importantly, I want to express the appreciation of the AOTF Board of Directors for the personal investment of our many colleagues in the work of the Foundation. Our progress would not be possible without your support and continued partnership with us as we build for the future was a banner year for AOTF in every way. And with your continuing support we look forward to ever greater success in the years ahead. Ruth Ann Watkins, President Jeffrey Reznick Welcomed as Director of AOTF Institute On March 12, Dr. Jeffrey S. Reznick assumed the position of Director of the AOTF Institute for the Study of Occupation and Health. His appointment will support the Foundation's work in promoting human occupation as fundamental to health and one's participation in the meaningful roles and activities that comprise everyday life. Jeff holds a PhD in history from Emory University and is an accomplished researcher and writer for both scholarly and popular audiences. His peer-reviewed scholarship is closely aligned with the history and future of occupational therapy. It addresses the social values that drive rehabilitation generally and, in particular, the rehabilitation of veterans with disabilities and their reintegration into civilian society. Jeff holds an adjunct appointment in Jeffrey S. Reznick, Photo courtesy of the National Museum of Health and Medicine the Department of Community Health and Family Practice at Howard University College of Medicine. He also serves on the Disability Workgroup of the National Association of County and City Health Officials. Jeff comes to AOTF from the National Museum of Health and Medicine of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, DC. As senior curator, he led the museum in scholarly research related to the past, present, and future of rehabilitation. He also served as executive director and senior research fellow of the Orthotic and Prosthetic Assistance Fund, the official philanthropy of the US orthotics and prosthetics community. In preparation for her retirement later this spring, Nedra Gillette, Interim Director of the Institute, is orienting Jeff to the structure and programs of the Institute, which she helped to conceptualize. It is truly exciting that our vision for an Institute for the Study of Occupation and Health will be realized this year, Nedra reflected with enthusiasm Jeff brings the skills, energy, and knowledge and leadership so necessary to make the AOTF vision a reality.

4 Third Habits Conference Energizes Participants convened an interdisciplinary AOTF research conference entitled Habit and Rehabilitation: Promoting Participation in late January 2007 at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California. This gathering marked the third in a series of AOTF conferences funded by the National Institutes of Health to study the relationship between habits and health. The habits conference series represents one of the Foundation s most significant commitments to innovation and the development of knowledge. More than 80 scholars from anthropology, social geography, neuroscience, psychology, education, occupational science, occupational therapy, human development, sociology, and gerontology participated in the conference. As a commitment to nurture future scholarship, the senior scientists who offered keynote presentations invited their protégés to contribute to the conference dialogue. Participants in the third habits conference traveled from Canada, Australia, Habits III protégé Jessica Kramer, UIC, proudly stands before her research poster at the conference. Jessica is also a 2006 AOTF Dissertation Research Grant recipient. Israel, Japan, and Sweden. Their interests spanned habits of good health, habits concerning the neural underpinnings of behavior, habits of social systems both positive and negative, and habits of families as they influence child development. Participants attended formal presentations of papers, poster sessions and roundtables. Dr. Florence Clark opened the meeting as keynote speaker. She presented a scholarly synthesis of the concepts of habit as found in the current literature. As a participant and speaker in each of the previous conferences, Dr. Clark s vision set the stage for building on existing knowledge to advance greater understanding about habits. She established important links between theoretical perspectives as represented by the contributing disciplines, and their clinical uses across rehabilitation. Dr. Elizabeth Townsend closed the conference with a synthesis of the five-day proceedings. In so doing, she engaged the theme of social justice to demonstrate the relevance of the presentations in this important regard. Enthusiasm toward Dr. Townsend s presentation and the overall value of this conference inspired the next habits conference planning committee to form on-the-spot. Plans are now underway for the fourth conference to be held early winter Proceedings of Habits III will be published as a supplement to the fall 2007 issue of OTJR: Occupation, Participation and Health. Occupational Therapy Loses Devoted Colleague Dr. Helen Hopkins (known by her many friends as Hoppy) died recently at her home after visiting with her friend Helen Smith in Boston and celebrating her 86th birthday. Former AOTA President, Mary Evert, described Hoppy as a great mentor with a delightful sense of humor a thoughtful woman who gave her whole life to the profession. AOTF was the beneficiary of more than a decade of Dr. Hopkins s leadership. The profession will long remember her conscientious advocacy for students as chairperson of the Foundation s Scholarship Committee for 12 years. It is for this service that AOTF is honoring Helen Hopkins with the Leadership Commendation at the AOTA Conference in The commendation will be bestowed posthumously. The occasion will be all the more meaningful as we acknowledge that Hoppy knew about her commendation and had planned to attend the conference in-person to receive it. Helen Hopkins was a founding faculty member of the Department of Occupational Therapy at Temple University, active at local, national, and international levels, and a former AOTA treasurer. She was named an AOTA Fellow and Helen Hopkins later received AOTA s highest service award, The Award of Merit. Promoting excellence in education was at the core of Hoppy s professional life. She may be best remembered as co-editor of four editions of Willard and Spackman s Occupational Therapy. Remembrance by Moya Kinnealy, Dr. Hopkins close friend and colleague and Martha Kirkland.

Devastated Botten Family and Friends Create an Enduring Legacy Friends and family were shaken when Linda Renee Botten and her husband Steven died in a motorcycle accident on February 18, 2007 near their home in Ventura County, California. Linda s family, friends, and colleagues quickly moved to establish The Linda Botten Memorial Scholarship Fund to commemorate her prestigious career as an occupational therapist. Linda graduated from the occupational therapy program at Colorado State University in Fort Collins and soon developed an aptitude for private practice and hand therapy. In 2000, Linda and Steven moved from their home in Bozeman, Montana to California and established a successful hand therapy practice that flourished and grew to five locations throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Linda was a devoted and encouraging mother and grandmother, active in many meaningful occupations. Linda and Steve will be remembered as avid travelers and lovers of the outdoors who placed supreme value on family and friendship.

8 Leveraging Resources and Securing the Future relies on tax-deductible donations from AOTF individuals and corporate partners, as well as grants from public and private sources to support its programs on behalf of the profession. AOTF is especially appreciative of the contributions it receives annually from the nearly 36,000 AOTA members who each contribute 2% of their membership dues to support the Foundation s operations. The strengths, talents, knowledge, and experience of volunteers and the AOTF staff allow us to gain the maximum benefit from every dollar. The 2006 AOTF Annual Report highlights the year s accomplishments and provides a public record of our assets and expenditures to promote occupational therapy research, education and practice. The Board of Directors and staff thank those who generously supported AOTF during the 2006 fiscal year. Taxdeductible donations and in-kind gifts enable AOTF to develop science, support education, advance practice, and disseminate information about occupation, participation and health.
