Fat Dogs and Coughing Horses
Fat Dogs and Coughing Horses: Animal Contributions towards a Healthier Citizenry was a cooperative effort among Purdue University's College of Veterinary Medicine, Discovery Learning Research Center at Discovery Park, College of Education, Agricultural Communication, College of Health and Human Sciences, Science Bound Program; public schools in Indiana; and The Children's Museum of Indianapolis to develop, evaluate and disseminate educational programs for K-12 students, parents, teachers, and the public about the science involved in keeping people healthy.
The project emphasized health issues that affect both people and animals: obesity prevention, cancer prevention and asthma.
The project described was supported by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
