ILKLEY & DISTRICT u3a
Talks are presently held via easy to use Zoom video link
Karen Alty will talk about the Medical Detection Dogs charity. You will hear about the work of the charity, how it came about and what their aims for the future are. Medical Detection Dogs are trained to detect the odour of human disease and alert us to those diseases in a variety of ways.
Not wanting to give too much away, you will learn the scientific basics of the dog's super sense and how diseases change the make-up and odour of our cells. With touching video input from some of their clients who directly benefit from having their own Medical Alert Assistance Dog and up to date information on their current work, this is a talk with something for everyone, from dog lovers and science fans to people with an interest in health and wellbeing.
