July Coffee & Connections
Your health and safety are very important to us, which is why we’ve decided to transition our Patient & Family Coffees to a virtual event series – ‘Coffee & Connections’. Our July meeting will feature guest speaker, Katherine Hill, CARF, Occupational Therapist at Ability KC.
Katherine will be joining RareKC’s July Coffee & Connections event to discuss rehabilitation throughout the rare journey. Her talk will answer the following questions you may have about rehab:
What is rehab and how does it work? What type of rehab is the best fit for my needs? How can rehab help you understand what the diagnosis really means in your daily life? How rehab can help your child reach their highest quality of life? Katherine will also review some examples of outcomes to help you best understand how rehab may help your child.
Katherine is a member of the pediatric medical rehabilitation team at Ability KC. She has a vast experience in working with children with ages ranging from 1 day old to 18 years old with a wide variety of diagnosis through her time starting a rehab program in a Special Care Nursery and Ability KC. Katherine holds a Master of Occupational Therapy, Bachelor of Science in Occupational Studies, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Kansas.
