The Department of Occupational Therapy in Duquesne's Rangos School of Health Sciences will host a virtual open house at 7 p.m. today, Tuesday, Feb. 18, to promote the online occupational therapy doctorate program that begins this May.

The virtual event will feature an overview and discussion of the following:
