The power of pets: How animals affect human health

April 10th @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm

For millennia, animal companions have comforted, entertained, and delighted us — and now, we increasingly understand how they affect our physical and mental well-being. To celebrate National Pet Day, we’re convening a conversation on the science of the human-animal connection and the unexpected ways pets can make a difference to our health. Register to send your questions… and get ready to see some adorable furry (and fluffy and scaly and feathery) friends in this special event. 

An on-demand video will be posted after the event.
