Humans and animals have been closely connected for centuries, and the bond between them has remained important for many reasons. The University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine Research Center for Human Animal Interaction (ReCHAI) is proud to be able to explore the growing research around the human-animal bond and how it impacts both physical and mental health in people and animals. ReCHAI, a program that was founded in 2005 as a dynamic collaboration between the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing and College of Veterinary Medicine, strives to educate scholars and community members, as well as create community focused programs and study the important benefits of human-animal interaction.
Your support is greatly appreciated and is critical to furthering the mission of ReCHAI.
