Current research

Therapy Dogs in End-of-Life Care: Preliminary Investigation & Epidemiological Considerations

Peggy's research focuses on the potential for bi-directional pathogen transmission in human-animal interactions in residential hospices, to address the considerable gaps in the existing literature and the dearth of evidence-based policies, guidelines, and best practices for mitigating the disease and welfare risks to animal and human populations. Through this work she hopes to enhance knowledge in the field, bring this discovery to practitioners, and influence policy.
