Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota

On August 6th I have the privilege of serving as a conversationalist at CHA’s Table Talk in St. Paul.  We will have a wonderful time and raise money in support of Children’s health.  One of the great programs Table Talk helps fund is Pets Assisting With Healing (PAWH).

Animals bring a world of medical benefits to human health.  The simple presence of animals in children’s hospitals helps the kids heal both mentally and physically.  All attendees will receive a coupon to download a copy of Coated With Fur:  A Vet’s Life.  I hope you will join us and support CHA.  More information is available at
