Vanderkooi Lecture

The Vanderkooi Endowed Lectureship

The Vanderkooi Endowed Lectureship was established in 1994 to honor the first program director of occupational therapy at Texas Woman’s University, Fanny B. Vanderkooi. It celebrates the School of Occupational Therapy’s legacy of commitment to vision, professional values, and leadership development in occupational therapy education, practice and research. The event is typically attended by more than 250 occupational therapy professionals, inclusive of students. 

The lectureship celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2023 with the return of its first lecturer, Lela Llorens.
