We are excited to provide the following update on how your 2018 investment in Professor Paws is making an impact on University of Oklahoma students, as well as middle and high school students around the state.
During the fall 2018 semester Niko, aka Professor Paws, and his trusty graduate assistant have presented on the benefits of service dogs and provided information to 415 middle and high school students on occupational and physical therapy as a future career. Some of the participating schools included Bixby Ninth Grade Center, Charles Page High School, Guthrie High School, Dove Science Academy, and the Union Public Schools’ Eighth Grade Center.
Niko also helped to educate over 120 University of Oklahoma students and members of the broader community. OU-Tulsa students who benefitted from Professor Paws include those in the College of Nursing, OU-TU School of Community Medicine physician assistant students plus child and adolescent psychiatry fellows, The Hudson College of Public Health, and the College of Allied Health. Presentations were also made to The Lindsey Oklahoma Progressive Study Club and MASH Camp reunion.
As you can see, Professor Paws has had a PAWS-itively impactful semester, which was made possible through your generous contribution. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our students and community.
