Dr. Rudman is an Associate Professor and Faculty Scholar School of Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario. She is currently the president of Canadian Society of Occupational Scientists. Dr. Rudman will lecture about her work focused on examining how occupational possibilities are constructed and for whom, as well as how they are actively negotiated by individuals and collectives.
The Mitchell Symposium is named in honor and memory of Dr. Marlys Mitchell, the founder of the master’s program in
Occupational Therapy at UNC Chapel Hill, and her husband, Earl, a great supporter of Marlys’ work (and of occupational therapy). The symposium was made possible through a new fund, initiated by a generous donation to the division made by Dr. Ruth Humphry and Dr. Bruce Carney.
