They challenged OT students at other universities to create their own fundraisers, engage their communities, and join together in a friendly competition in support of AOTF's mission.

Health care worker's COVID-19 poem: 'At the end of each shift I’m taking you home'

Alumna Lizzy Pesch, MSOT '16, penned an emotional poem describing the difficulties of the pandemic from a health-care worker's point of view. It was posted to a Facebook group started by a local nurse, and she was immediately inundated with messages of thanks. "A lot of times we see what we see and it is traumatic and it is hard to process," said Pesch. "A lot of people said, 'You were able to put what I feel and what I see into words.'" Her story and poem are featured on Good Morning America's website: https://www.goodmorningamerica.com/wellness/story/health-care-workers-falling-therapist-writes-moving-poem-74750620?fbclid=IwAR3yzU0oYEedJZBuXCMxHPmxXYuAAl_4TNW0shay1B-esYkmJzYoA4DjV00
