Contribution: Lic. Daiana Balero - AATO - Salta Subsidiary President

Salta has been an AATO subsidiary since March 2020: The board of directors with external collaborators designed a logo to represent them. It has a lot of symbolism and meaning, since the central design is the image of the province and the colors that give it life are those of the provincial flag. In addition, it comes together like a puzzle, which was intended to symbolize the union and consolidation of occupational therapists.
