6th Annual Anne Cronin Mosey Lectureship

6th Annual Anne Cronin Mosey Lectureship February 2009

On Thursday, February 19th 2009, the Department of Occupational Therapy hosted the 6th Annual Anne Cronin Mosey Lectureship on the New York University campus.

The event was held in the Rosenthal Pavilion at the Kimmel Center for Student Life, located at 60 Washington Square South.  With over 140 attendees, this year's Anne Cronin Mosey Lectureship was the largest to date.  Guests included NYU alumni, faculty and current students, in addition to students and faculty from other local institutions and many local Occupational Therapists. 

The evening began at 5:30 pm with a wine reception and dinner, followed by the announcement of the recipients of the 2009 Frieda J. Behlen Scholarships: Susan Braham, Janelle Carbo and Razia Khan.

Gary Kielhofner, DrPH, OTR/L, FAOTA delivered this year's Anne Cronin Mosey lecture, "Scholarship in Support of Evidence-Based Practice: Bridging the Gap between Theory, Research and Practice in Occupational Therapy." He used the Model of Human Occupation as an example to examine arguments concerning the role of scholarship in occupational therapy, and proposed how scholarship can more clearly support practice.
