Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Kids Need Exercise. Go Marcia Go!

In looking over the May-June issue of the ATRA Newsletter I was pleased to see ATRA member Marcia Smith, M.S., CTRS, is helping to lead an initiative to increase physical activity for children and youth with disabilities. The initiative is being organized by the Department of Health and Human Services. DHHS offers a six-week program that RTs may implement. Marcia is a long-time member of the RT Department at the National Instiute of Health and would like to hear from anyone with interest in the DHHS program. Marcia may be contacted at 301.496.8876 or
