Trojans Talk OT

Trojans Talk OT is a podcast series designed to inform and entertain occupational therapy practitioners, students, educators, and our friends. Broadcasting from the University of Southern California’s Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, hosts Alyssa Concha and Rob Russow look to track down leaders, innovators and advocates in the field, bringing their voices to a wider audience. Through conversations about important research, events, and perspectives on practice we aim to empower the greater OT community. Our goal is to support the Centennial Vision of occupational therapy as a powerful, widely recognized, science-driven, and evidence-based field of practice by arming our audience with information about advocacy, information, and research to support their evidence-based practice.
