Occupational therapy students at the University of Manitoba were busy this October as they raised money for two inner-city health programs.
Through bake sales, Karma Yoga classes, and other fundraisers, the 100 students raised $4,398.82, or $2,199.41 for both The Nine Circles Community Health Centre and the Winnipeg Interprofessional Student-Run Health Clinic.
"We chose those organizations because primary care is really an emerging role for occupational therapists so we thought it would serve a dual purpose," said Tonya Enns, student organizer of the fundraising. "Raising money for organizations that we care about and also promoting a new role for occupational therapists."
