VIDEO: Recreational therapy website provides open access to research

Started in 2013 by Heather Porter, associate professor of recreational therapy, RT Wise Owls is a database providing free recreational therapy research to students, professors and clinicians in the community in hopes of improving patient outcomes.



The site, which began as a way to showcase research conducted by Temple students for the annual Evidence-Based Practice Day conference, has since garnered thousands of views from more than 70 countries around the world. Recognized by the NIH, it’s the only resource of its kind in the field of recreational therapy.
