The Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction (ReCHAI) is a collaboration between the MU Sinclair School of Nursing and the College of Veterinary Medicine with a mission to conduct research and community programs demonstrating the health benefits of human-companion animal interaction. We have numerous projects working with U.S. military veterans, older adults, abused children, hospitalized adults and prison offenders.
This year our team is looking forward to presenting our work at two international human-animal bond conferences - The International Society for Anthrozoology in Barcelona, Spain and the International Association of Human Animal Interaction Organizations in Paris, France. ReCHAI is a front-runner in the field of human-animal interaction and this is an important opportunity for our members to showcase our work at Mizzou on an international level. These experiences will also give undergraduate, doctoral and post-doctoral students the opportunity to meet and learn from prominent scientists in the field. In order to have these rich experiences the ReCHAI team is fundraising to support travel costs for our stellar students. We thank you for helping to make this happen.
