Pet Therapy Positively Impacts Patients and Caregivers of Cancer

“Animal-assisted therapy has been shown to reduce stress, improve energy levels, and decrease perceived pain and anxiety.”

For this episode of “The Vitals,” we spoke with Cynthia Ingram, BS, RN, HN-BC, COHN-S, animal therapy coordinator, CTCA Chicago. She talked about how she pursued her dream to bring animal therapy to patients in her care center and how, together, her and her furry companion, Tori, touched the lives of many patients and caregivers and brought a little bit of joy to their day.
