The 2017 Homecoming Brunch & Distinguished Alumni Awards!

The School of Rehabilitation Therapy is looking forward to welcoming alumni to campus during Queen’s Homecoming, October 13-15th, 2017. A highlight of the weekend will be the School’s Annual Homecoming Brunch hosted at the Donald Gordon Centre on Saturday, October 14th. The Brunch includes the presentation of the Distinguished Alumni Awards.

The School of Rehabilitation Therapy Distinguished Alumni Awards were established in 2013 to recognize one graduate annually from each of the Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science programs. Recipients of the Awards are individuals who have distinguished themselves, at home or abroad, and made a difference to the well-being of others. Among their many accomplishments, recipients of the Award are recognized for providing leadership within their chosen profession; by demonstrating an ongoing commitment to the education of rehabilitation students and graduates; by advancing rehabilitation research; and through a continued involvement with the Queen’s community.

We hope that you are able to join us at the Brunch in honouring these individuals who have made truly exceptional contributions to their professions and communities. The Brunch also provides a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends and learn more about what is happening at the School. Everyone is welcome to attend – all alumni (AGHE, OT, PT, RHBS); former and current faculty and staff; students; clinicians, therapists and rehabilitation scientists working in Kingston and the surrounding areas; family and friends.
