Community Partners

Each year, Eastern Michigan University’s Occupational Therapy Program invites community organizations and businesses to partner with us in sponsoring the annual Lyla M. Spelbring Endowed Lecture. The Endowed Lecture is the centerpiece of a one-day conference that also offers workshops and presentations by outstanding local clinicians and scholars. Sponsorships or financial gifts in the form of items or services help us defray costs of the event and enables us to offer the conference to students and alumni who might not otherwise be able to attend this extraordinary learning opportunity.


Supporters’ names appear in print materials at the conference and are verbally acknowledged during the lecture announcements.

We are always seeking donations of goods and services to help defray our costs; if you’re interested in partnering with us, please email us at
