2MPOWER! was founded July 5, 2019 by Katayoun Moini with the goal of revolutionizing medical education and patient care.
Our commitment to community empowerment:
Moini is a registered therapy animal handler and her pup Luci, is a registered therapy dog.
Luci successfully completed Pet Partners Animal Handler Course and since 2013 has been providing Animal Assisted Interventions at schools, universities, healthcare facilities and airports. Animal-assisted interventions are goal oriented and structured interventions that intentionally incorporate animals in health, education and human service for the purpose of therapeutic gains and improved health and wellness. Animal assisted therapy (AAT), animal-assisted education (AAE) and animal-assisted activities (AAA) are all forms of animal-assisted interventions.
Research shows that even a 10-minute interaction with a therapy animal can reduce depression, pain and stress and improve energy levels.
