Dogs are at the heart of People Animal Connection, a UCLA Health program that creates a therapeutic connection with service animas to aid healing, reduce stress and provide positive interactions that mends lives. Beverly Hills Philanthropist Paula Kent Meehan believed in the healing power of pets, and provided generous support to the PAC program, including Paula’s PetPal Place, a special outdoor spot where patients can visit with their own animals to speed healing. Volunteers and their dogs were recognized Wednesday at a UCLA Faculty Center tea, where Marilee Bradford (left),who has served with her dog Tovah for 15 years, received the Paula Kent Meehan Outstanding PAC Team Award 2016, presented by Chief Patient Experience Officer Tony Padilla (right).
