On Pet Therapy
Reminiscing on experience with the beginnings of pet therapy in the hospital.
I think ACP is an organization with a long and storied history, and really harkens back to the history of medicine in this country. It provides resources and a network of physicians that can really help advance one’s career and keep one abreast of knowledge of both the science of medicine, as well as some of the policy issues—I think there are a lot of benefits that a physician gets from being a member of ACP.
