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.

Still Hot - Protect Yourself & Your Clients

Suggestions from the CDC to deal with the heat:

•Stop all activity and go to a cool environment at the first signs of faintness or weakness
•Limit outdoor activity, especially midday when the sun is hottest
•Start slowly and gradually increase the pace of physical activity
•Drink more water than usual and start hydrating before the onset of thirst
•Have a workout partner and monitor each other's condition
•Wear loose, light-weight, light-colored clothing
•Seek medical care immediately if symptoms of heat-related illness arise
