The fifth annual World Occupational Therapy Day will be held on October 27, 2014. The World Federation of Occupational Therapy website has many resources for those interested in being a part of the world-wide promotion and celebration of the global impact occupational therapy has on the health and well-being of society. Held in conjunction with World OT Day is the OT Global Day of Service.  The Promoting OT website lists the community service activities your fellow OTs are participating in around the world and provides a sign up to let others know how you plan to give back to your community.
