Please join Drs. Chetna Sethi and Sonia Lawson for a discussion that addresses the many ways occupational therapists face and manage disparities that show up in our profession – from the differences in availability, access, and acceptability of services to how our personal perspectives shape our engagement with colleagues and clients. This conversation is intended to be a space to share perspectives and concerns. Let us generate some ideas for advocacy!
