Students develop COVID-19 resource in Spanish

To respond to the current health crisis and support communities, OTD students Ricardo Ramirez, Cristina Rodriguez and Ashley Maldonado used their occupational therapy skills to create a COVID-19 factsheet in Spanish to support the Latinx community.

The factsheet, which features OT oriented tips on staying active, has been disseminated widely to several community agencies in the Chicagoland area, as well as community agencies in Cleveland, Ohio; Santa Clara, California; Salisbury, Maryland; Saint Paul, Minnesota; and Anchorage, Alaska. The factsheet has reached as far as the Latinx community in Hong Kong.

Agencies posted the sheet on their website and their health promoters are sharing it throughout the community and on social media.
