2017 Keynote Speaker
 Dr. Amy Lamb
President, AOTA

Dr. Lamb is President of the American Occupational Therapy  Association. She brings with her the valuable combination of clinical practice as a licensed occupational therapist combined together with health care policy experience at the state and federal levels. Dr. Lamb’s expertise includes health policy, prevention and wellness, and occupational therapy as a career.

She is integral in articulating the distinct value of occupational therapy in traditional and emerging areas of practice including primary health care and wellness initiatives.  She speaks regularly to groups on health policy issues impacting practice emphasizing quality services for beneficiaries and provides participants with practical ways to get involved in the process and make their voices heard. Dr. Lamb works to help practitioners, students, educators and researchers identify their role as influencers of change in their daily work as we demonstrate the value of occupational therapy to enhancing the efficiency of systems we work within, enhancing the quality of care client’s receive, and being a cost effective solution to meet the dynamic needs of the people, populations and communities we serve.
