Linda Buettner memorial

Dr. Linda Buettner, a noted professor of Therapeutic Recreation who died last April, is being remembered later this month.

Through the generous support of students, friends and colleagues, a memorial will be held Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at 4 p.m., as the the Department of Community and Therapeutic Recreation hosts a tree planting ceremony just outside of the Therapeutic Recreation Lab located at 247 Ferguson Building.

Through her visionary leadership and commitment, Buettner helped shape and guide the fields of therapeutic recreation and gerontology, noted Dr. Stuart Schleien, chair of the department. “As an inspirational teacher and researcher, and internationally recognized scholar, Lin pioneered non-pharmacological interventions for people living with dementia.”

For further information, you may contact Amy Chandler, administrative assistant for the department, at 334-5327.
