Undergraduate student Lora Doherty, a senior in Therapeutic Recreation, was recently featured in a Tennessee Today article that detailed her research efforts at Operation Purple Camp during the summer of 2016. Angela Wozencroft, Associate Professor in Therapeutic Recreation, helped Doherty through the research process.
Aside from helping her better understand her field of study, Doherty also credits this research experience as what set her apart from the competition when applying to graduate schools. She interviewed with five different graduate programs and was accepted at all five. She will start graduate school in occupational therapy this fall.
