KwikMed Quality OT Blog Sites

After considering hundreds of sites in dozens of categories, KwikMed has chosen Alberta OT Pediatric Interest Group to be listed for offering excellent editorial content in the occupational therapy category.

KwikMed itself is a unique health provider, regularly recognized in the national press for offering an innovative approach to care. They are one of only two providers fully licensed to prescribe online safely in the US and this sets them apart from the competition. You can see the list of occupational therapy blog sites here:

We are excited to be a part of this list and look forward to continuing to post relevant information for pediatric occupational therapists in Alberta.  Please take a moment to check out the other blogs that have been recognized.  There are some former U of A faculty member blogs on this page as well!
