Present online during our bi-monthly series of Lunchtime Sessions or at our in-person 2021 TRI. 

This year’s TRI promises to be an exciting and engaging series of events that will provide all professionals in the field an opportunity to participate and learn the latest in new techniques, research, and programming in Therapeutic Recreation.  Through a bi-monthly series of lunchtime sessions and an in-person Institute in State College on Sept. 30 – Oct 1, 2021, we hope to bring practitioners a diverse and exciting selection of educational experiences and the opportunity to earn over 20 hours of NCTRC continuing education credit in 2021.
