The Department of Occupational Therapy participated in the 16th International Congress of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) that took place on June 18-21, 2014 in Yokohama, Japan. New York University was one of only three Occupational Therapy programs from the United States to have an exhibition booth at the conference.
