MOT Student Selected for National Leadership Program

Congratulations to Gabrielle Heckman who was selected for the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) Emerging Leadership Development Program (ELDP).

AOTA’s ELDP gives students and new practitioners who have demonstrated dedication and commitment through services to the profession at the start of their career, the tools and training to become strong leaders within occupational therapy. The program is highly respected and very competitive.

“I’m thrilled about this opportunity to enhance my leadership skills within my profession,” said Heckman. “I couldn’t have done it without all the support and mentorship I received from faculty and staff at the School of Health Professions.”

Heckman is a current student in the Master of Occupational Therapy program at the University of Missouri School of Health Professions.
