The Power of Pets: Health Benefits of Human-Animal Interactions

Subscribe to Health Systems Chat!


Nothing compares to the joy of coming home to a loyal companion. Their unconditional love does more than keep us company. Pets can decrease stress, improve heart health, and even help us with emotional and social skills. I certainly know that Jets, our miniature schnauzer, helped us so much during COVID 19 shutdowns... Please join Health Systems Chat regulars and NOOBs to share how your dog, cat, rabbit, ferret, bird, or fish helped your emotional and physical health, and to more generally discuss the health benefits of human-animal interactions. Through the magic of VR we will convene in the AltspaceVR Pet Sculpture Garden.
