McCormick Honored with the American Therapeutic Recreation Association’s Presidential Award

In October of 2013, the American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA) hosted its annual conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania bringing together researchers, practitioners, and students from around the country.

As part of the annual event, awards were distributed to those who have demonstrated professional success within the field and who have provided exceptional service to the organization. This year Dr. Bryan McCormick, current chair of the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Studies was honored with the organization’s Presidential Award.

Selected at the discretion of the organization’s President for distinguished service, this year’s award honored Dr. McCormick’s work in conjunction with IU SPH Alumni Dr. Gretchen Snethen with ATRA in analyzing the results and completing a summary that was presented to the ATRA membership committee regarding the ATRA Standards of Practice Survey and Evaluation Tool.
