CLEVELAND — Just in time for Wellness Wednesday, Betsy Kling and Christi Paul were joined on 'What's New' by special guests from Cleveland Clinic to talk about their 'Caring Canines' program.
After having to pause their volunteering programs due to COVID-19, the doors are open for help once again. Cleveland Clinic volunteers offer their time and talents in a variety of ways designed to enhance the patient experience.
One of the volunteer programs that the Clinic is seeking help for is the 'Caring Canines' initiative. The certified therapy dogs, along with their volunteer handlers, provide emotional support and reduce anxiety for patients and their families.
We were joined on Wednesday's show by Alicia Pitre, the director of volunteer services at Cleveland Clinic. Caring Canine volunteer Pam Smith and her dog E. were also on hand.
