Tina C. McNulty, MS, OTR/L, a lecturer in the UNM Occupational Therapy Graduate Program, has received the Cordelia Meyers Writers Award from the American Occupational Therapy Association.

The award recognizes the best article by a first time author in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy (AJOT). The association confers only one award nationally each year.

McNulty's article, "Validity of Using the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills to Estimate Overall Home Safety in Persons with Psychiatric Conditions," was published in the November/December/2001 issue of AJOT.

Based in Bethesda, Md., the American Occupational Therapy Association advances the quality, availability, use, and support of occupational therapy through standard-setting, advocacy, education, and research on behalf of its members and the public.
