The Humane Society of the United States’ Pets for Life program uses a person-centered approach to break down barriers to accessing veterinary care and other pet services in over 40 underserved communities. The University of Denver’s Institute for Human-Animal Connection is conducting research to measure the impacts of this focused animal welfare programming on broader community health within the One Health framework. Data from the first year of the four-year Pets for Life as One Health Study, including a detailed pet inventory and the development and validation of a unique One Health Community Assessment instrument, will be presented.

Members of the public are invited to this seminar on campus or remotely at no charge.

Please note – this event will NOT be recorded. We hope you can join us on campus or online!
