Colleagues and friends, old and new: It is an honor to address you today for a fourth and final time as president of your American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).
You know that I use the phrase OT in HD—occupational therapy in high definition—to describe how I see the profession of occupational therapy as we approach our Centennial Vision (AOTA, 2007) in 2017.
