Are dogs part of the next wave of human healthcare? Sentara says “yes.” And they mean it: Volunteer Coordinator Kelly Divita of Sentara Norfolk has reached out to area veterinarians for help recruiting therapy dogs and their owners for this special brand of medicine known as “puppy love.”

“Dogs can offer a therapeutic component to healthcare that our staff cannot provide.
