LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) - June Wilson, O.T.L., will be the next presenter for the EOU Health Speaker Series Thursday, Nov. 21. Students and community members are invited to attend the free presentation at 6 p.m. in Badgley Hall, Room 102.

Wilson has been the manager of Grande Ronde Hospital’s Rehabilitation Therapy Department since 2004, where she is also a clinician. She has interned and worked in various settings including inpatient care for the Veterans Administration, forensic mental health and skilled nursing facilities.

Wilson’s recent experience has been in acute inpatient hospital, outpatient and home healthcare. She was attracted to occupational therapy for its ability to help others function at their full potential, in addition to career and client versatility. She also enjoys the opportunity to look at each individual as a whole person, rather than a compartmentalized diagnosis.

Wilson earned her bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy from the University of Puget Sound.

EOU and the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center launched 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.
