It is with heavy hearts that we announce the tragic loss of a
fellow South Carolina OT and dedicated SCOTA member. Andrea Bennett Freeman was a
beloved Dorchester District 2 practitioner that is described by friends as “the
best OT I have ever met” and “an amazing person with a larger than life
personality!” Andrea and her husband leave behind three daughters. Please keep
her family in your prayers as they endure this heartbreaking tragedy.

AOTA/NBCOT Draft Occupational Therapy Licensure Compact Available for Comment
For the next 10 weeks, the Council of State Governments (CSG) will solicit comments on the draft Occupational Therapy Compact. Information regarding CSG's invitation can be found here. We encourage you to review the materials and provide comments or questions about the compact to OTCompact@csg.org. CSG is vetting the compact with state licensing boards, state legislators, state legislative staff, state membership organizations, and OT practitioners.
