Purina Better With Pets Summit
Michelle Fern reports live from the 2015 Purina Better With Pets Summit in New York City. The third annual summit shines a spotlight on the emotional wellness of pets and the people who love them. How do pets help us be well? How do we help them in return?
The day-long summit, which was hosted by Emmy-nominated comedian and writer, Josh Gondelman, took place at the Brooklyn Expo Center in New York City on Nov. 3 and featured three panel discussions that examined the emotional relationship between pets and people, including the reciprocal effects both have on one another. Keynote speeches were presented by Purina senior research nutritionist Arleigh Reynolds, who has researched the dog and human bond for many years in Alaska and supports of The Frank Attla Youth Program; and author and reality television personality Carole Radziwill, who shared how pet ownership has shaped her life experiences.
