Human-Animal Bond Programs

SVM continues to promote human health and well being through the following programs:

HIV/AIDS and Pet Ownership: The Office of External Affairs distributed its brochure titled "HIV/AIDS and Pet Ownership" to physicians, veterinarians, nurses, other health care providers, AIDS-support groups, animal shelters, and people living with HIV/AIDS.

Pet-Facilitated Therapy: TUSVM students, faculty, and staff continued to take their behavior-tested and health-screened pets to visit patients in the nursing home at the Tuskegee Veterans Affairs Medical Center twice per month.
