RT Research and Training Lab
What is RT2
RT2 is a Recreational Therapy Research and Training Lab housed in the Department of Occupational and Recreational Therapies at the University of Utah.
The abbreviated name of RT2 ("RT Squared") references the RT in both the primary focus areas of the lab: 1) Recreational Therapy, and 2) Research and Training.
The mission of the lab is to advance recreational therapy practice through both research and training initiatives while simultaneously building partnerships and collaborations involving 1) faculty/researchers, 2) students, 3) practitioners, and 4) consumers/clients.
The four sides of the square surround the RT2 in the lab's logo graphically depict the joining of these four groups of stakeholders in efforts to advance the recreational therapy profession.
