June 6 – 10th, our Milliken Hand Rehabilitation Team participated in activities and challenges celebrating the annual Hand Therapy Week led by the American Society of Hand Therapists. Some of the unique ways that we were able to highlight our talented team was by showcasing “blinged-out” orthotic creations, getting the thoughts of a hand therapist who is pursuing the “CHT” certification, and sharing some throwback photos of the early days at Milliken, just to mention a few.
Here were all of the daily challenges for Hand Therapy Week 2022:
MONDAY (6/6): “Bling It” Orthosis
TUESDAY (6/7): CHT in the Making
WEDNESDAY (6/8): “Nailed It” Challenge — Like Netflix’s “Nailed It!,” we’re looking for “amateur orthosis makers”
THURSDAY (6/9): #ThrowbackThursday
FRIDAY (6/10): Grassroots Effort Day — Share photos, videos, links, etc. to all the ways you’ve spread awareness and advocated for hand and upper extremity therapy
