As a student run organization, we raise money for many different opportunities. This event helps us provide UAB OT students with scholarships for books, it allows us to supply our local community sites, and it enables UAB students to attend our OT national conference, AOTA, in the spring.

In addition, we strive to promote occupational therapy in the community through a variety of service projects throughout the year.
