Public Health Department Head Designs Study for PTSD Service Dog Pilot Program

  • Author: Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Dr. Gary English, Department Head for the Department of Public Health, designed and now is overseeing a study on the effects service dogs can have on veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Western Kentucky University has partnered with America’s VetDogs to conduct the survey. With the study they hope to “determine whether service dogs actually help mitigate the symptoms of PTSD and, thus, improve the quality of life.” An article written about the study was published in INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. The article can be found on page 8 at http://www.insightintodiversity.com/images/downloads/digitalissues/aprilmay2015/index.html
