UPDATE 3/13/2017

LEGISLATIVE ALERT!

In recognition of the 2017 Centennial celebration, OOTA is including ALL Ohio OT/OTA licensees on action alert updates regarding legislative efforts impacting OT practice in Ohio.
If you are not yet a member of OOTA, please consider adding your voice and support to these advocacy efforts by joining OOTA today!
