Welcome to District V

Greetings from the District Executive Officer  

  

Welcome to POTA District V! Join us in our drive for a dynamic membership that will support and promote occupational therapy throughout the healthcare arena.


As a district, we support our members through professional advocacy, leadership opportunities and educational programs. Our district offers dinner meetings several times throughout the year that highlight current trends and issues affecting occupational therapy in our region. District V also highlights service projects that promote occupational therapy with action and support throughout the Philadelphia area.


Check in often to see what excitement District V has in store for the coming year.
