Over several decades, Dr. Angeline M. Siegel discovered that when we engage with animals through a wellness lens, we improve the health and well-being of people, animals and the environment. AWI expands upon the holistic approach fostered by Dr. Siegel through a tapestry of strategies, including research, advocacy, training and technology.
