Presented by the Department of Occupational Therapy, University of Illinois at
Chicago in Cooperation with the American Occupational Therapy Foundation




January 14 and 15, 2010                            Chicago, Illinois

The Occupational Therapy Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is proud to
announce the first inaugural international institute on the Model of Human Occupation – a research
symposium that highlights recent and ongoing international MOHO research that is designed to
understand and impact practice. The Institute is being offered by the MOHO Clearinghouse at UIC
in collaboration with the American Occupational Therapy Foundation

2010 marks the 30th anniversary of the introduction of the Model of Human Occupation (MOHO),
the first contemporary model to articulate a focus on occupation in practice. MOHO is supported by
a substantial body of research generated over the past three decades and new research is
developing at a rapid pace. To date, over 350 studies related to MOHO have been published.

The institute is scheduled for Thursday and Friday of January 14-15, 2010, at the University of
Illinois at Chicago. Practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students are all welcome to
attend. Attendees may register for either day ($50) or both days ($75). Continuing Education Units
for Illinois Licensed Occupational Therapists will be offered.
