The mission of the Legacy Society is to honor and recognize those who express a commitment to the future of education, research and practice by including the USC Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy in their estate and financial plans. Your legacy will support a world class education to generations of practitioners, leaders, and researchers who study the impact of everyday living on health and wellness. Your legacy can be directed to a specific area of practice or designed to best support the priorities of the Division.
