Dog Day at Corbett Hall

June 29, 2016

Corbett Hall Dog Day on June 15th was an immense success! The members of the CSD 900 project “Must Love Dogs II” were overjoyed with the turnout and media coverage: http://globalnews.ca/…/how-dogs-are-helping-patients-with-p….

Members of TAAILS, as well as CHEEP‘s very own Shona and Jasper, came out to assist students from Speech-Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy present information on the incorporation of animal-assisted therapy in rehab medicine. CAAWLS brought many furry therapy partners and information about volunteering with their organization, and the Edmonton Humane Society attended with a booth highlighting the importance of reading animal body language.

It was an hour of interdisciplinary collaboration extraordinaire: http://rehabilitation.ualberta.ca/…/dog-day-at-u-of-a-showc…
