Duquesne University Occupational Therapy Grad on Today Show!
Lindsay Whelan, a 2006 graduate of the Occupational Therapy program, was seen on the Today Show working with Aimee Copeland, the Georgia graduate student who suffered multiple amputations of both hands, both feet and her left leg. In May 2012 Amy contracted flesh-eating bacteria after a zip-lining accident. She was fitted with two state-of -the-art prosthetic hands and Lindsay was guiding her through the often tedious process of learning to adapt to them and regain function.  Click here to see OT and Lindsay in action!!
