Distinguished Speaker

The John J. Bazyk Distinguished Speaker Day

 

The CSU Occupational Therapy Program has sponsored a Distinguished Speaker Day since 1998.  This event was named the John J. Bazyk Distinguished Speaker Day in 2001 in honor of John’s 13 years of leadership as Director of the OT Program.  An endowment account was established to support this event using a generous donation from Patrick Baker, class of 1997. 

The event has been organized to accomplish the following goals

    1. Provide a seminar given by a nationally known scholar in occupational therapy for alumni and therapists in Northeast Ohio to thank them for their support of the CSU OT Program and to stimulate thoughts and discussion on current practice

    2. Provide an opportunity for the students in the OT Program to interact with nationally known scholars and leaders in the profession

    3. Provide an opportunity for the OT Program Faculty to interact with nationally known scholars to discuss academic issues such as curriculum, research, and practice
