St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program

Thursday, August 18, 2022 - 11:00am to 12:00pm
Connell 6 Elevator Bay / ER

Please join John (Handler) & Oscar (Dog) at the Connell 6 Elevator Bay or Julie (Handler) & Doc (Dog) at the ER on Thursdays from 11-12. Staff are welcome to pet Oscar and Doc, one at a time with sanitized hands.

For healthcare workers, spending time with animals in the course of one's work day can provide a sense of calming, it can lower stress and blood pressure and may offer a sense of happiness and hopefulness.
