Backpack Awareness Month!

Backpack logoCalling all OT practitioners and students! September is National Backpack Awareness Month! TOTA is planning events across the state to educate the public about backpack safety and ergonomics. Each district will host a backpack awareness event during September 2021. These events are opportunities for members to become involved with TOTA’s mission and goals. There are multiple ways to serve, from helping the district chairs to organize the events, to creating media and public announcements, and lastly, participating at the events by providing assessments. Email your district chair to learn how you can become involved with these events!
