The Cree Health Board celebrates the hard work of our Occupational Therapists (OTs). OTs help disabled, injured or ill clients by using therapeutic activities. Their dedicated efforts improve the lives of so many Eeyou and Eenou.
“From childhood to elderhood, occupational therapists are there to support those in need of recovery therapy, to get them back to doing what matters most. Thank you to all our OTs for their dedication to the people of Eeyou Istchee!” - Adelina Feo, Director of Professional Services and Quality Assurance (DPSQA) - Allied Health
