June Wilson, O.T.L.

LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ June Wilson, O.T.L., will be the next presenter for the EOU Health Speaker Series Thursday, Nov. 29. Students and community members are invited to attend this free presentation at 6 p.m. in Badgley Hall, Room 102.

Wilson is an occupational therapist and the rehab department manager of Grande Ronde Hospital’s Rehabilitation Therapy Department. She graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy.

Wilson has interned and worked in various settings including inpatient care for the Veterans Administration, forensic mental health and skilled nursing facilities. Her recent experience has been in acute inpatient hospital, outpatient and home health care. She was attracted to occupational therapy for its ability to help others function at their full potential, as well as its career and client versatility. She also enjoys the opportunity her chosen field affords her to look at each individual as a whole person, rather than a compartmentalized diagnosis. Wilson has worked at GRH as a clinician and Rehab Department manager since 2004.

EOU and the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center organize the speaker series with the goal of providing students interested in pursuing healthcare careers the opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from members of the area medical community. The series will continue through spring term with one presentation each month.
