In celebration of recreation therapy month, URTA is excited to announce our first annual “Recreation Therapy Day on the Hill”. We are shouting out to all licensed recreation therapy professionals to join us Monday February 22, to go to Capitol Hill and meet with our legislatures. There is no current legislation regarding recreation therapy this year, however we want to make ourselves known to our legislators and educate them on the amazing services we provide. We plan to make this an annual event and want you to all be a part of it. We are planning to provide food, transportation and lodging for those who may need it. More details will come soon, so please save the date.

If you have any questions or want to RSVP for this event, please contact Amy Stoeger at amy(at)trconnections(dot)com or call (801) 792-8932
