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.

Doug Sessoms Passes Away

Sad news. Doug Sessoms has passed away in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, following a long illness. Doug was a professor in recreation at UNC-Chapel Hill for 42 years. While his area was not RT, he was always highly supportive of our profession. To say the least, Doug will be greatly missed.
