September's discussion for the HAI interest group will be about the Aging in Place with Pets Resource Guide –an information-based guide for professionals and older adults.

Dr. Mary Beth Rauktis of the Social Work Program will talk about the research that informed the guide, the process of how the students created it and plans for how it can be used in the future.
