In this episode, I talked with Julie and Julia, two newly registered OTs. Their research project aimed to improve health literacy among mothers of children with disabilities in Morocco through graphic novels. We uncorked the value of this medium and considerations when creating health resources. Keep listening after the interview to find out about a new resource for new grad OTs and an announcement about a new collaboration that OT uncorked is part of!
