IOTA Journal Club East District Hybrid Event Recap
By Meredith Chandler, IOTA East District Representative

Let IOTA Journal Club 2024 Begin!

The IOTA East District hosted journal club this May at 7Eighty5, located in downtown Blackfoot. Presenter Melanie Shaw, and OT student with Idaho State University, discussed the 2022 Eleanor Clarke Slagle Lecture by Kristie Patten (nominated in 2021, presented in 2022), “Finding Our Strengths: Recognizing Professional Bias and Interrogating Systems.” In honor of the first journal club event of the year, IOTA approved 1.0 CEs for ALL practitioners in attendance, not just association members.

Aside from sharing her detailed knowledge of recognizing functional strengths and passions in autism spectrum disorder, Melanie was also gracious enough to offer personal insights which were recorded for digital storage in IOTA’s continuing education archives as a future resource for member practitioners. We look forward to the next journal club event!
