Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) is a therapeutic service dog training program designed to naturally reduce the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury in veterans and service members. WCC is offered at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence on the campus of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It has been proven that interaction with animals reduces biological and psychological symptoms of depression and stress. Hear more on how the program works and the future promise it holds for treating more than 300,000 Warriors suffering from PTSD. WCC dogs will also be on hand for the program!
