Animal Assisted Therapy at Nemours

Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care in Jacksonville is a first-of-its kind model to incorporate animals into clinical, therapeutic treatment planning for Nemours patients. Through a partnership with local experts at the University of North Florida Brooks College of Health, Nemours will implement an AAT program to benefit today’s patients and conduct large-scale studies that contribute to research for the benefit of people, and animals, everywhere. Learn more about this new program and its innovative research studies here.
