Show Notes: Get ready because it’s a co-host only roundtable for this episode. We’ll be doing a round of rapid fire questions that we’ll be asking each of the roundtablers, the catch is that none of us know what the others are going to ask. So I hope you’re ready to learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know (and maybe even more) about Brock, Michelle, and Sarah today.

00 – Welcome To The OT Roundtable
We are going to have roundtable discussions about pressing topics related to occupational therapy. On top of that, we will be bringing in guests with expertise in the topic areas to broaden the experience and it’s our goal to facilitate conversations to a wide range of issues. We are by no means experts, but by bringing these conversations to the forefront, we hope to bring awareness to what might sometimes be uncomfortable topics but that we feel need to be addressed.
