Individual OT Consultations

The USC Emeriti Center in partnership with the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy is sponsoring Zoom learning sessions featuring our OT graduate students again this semester.

OT students are offering individual consultations based on your interests and needs. Do you have specific issues and questions? They can be about wellness, healthy aging, technology, lifestyle changes, sleep, ergonomics, posture, or any concerns about how to function better in your daily life.
