Meet Bella, our favorite therapy dog.
Hearts and Hugs is proud to be recognized as the Official Class Charity of the Medical College of Georgia Class of 2019. This allows us to positively impact the lives of 190+ medical students. To combat stress, we developed a program where a certified therapy dog visits before quizzes and exams. Countless students rave that "dog therapy" has allowed them to focus and score higher. Our dog therapy program has since been adopted university wide including the undergraduate campus, dental school, allied health, and remaining medical school classes. In addition, this model has also been adopted throughout both the main hospital and Children's Hospital of Georgia.
