Photo Friday: Watch the Audience (New Dog and Human Parks in Washington, DC)

What is everyone smiling at? Yesterday was a big day in Washington, DC, with the leash-cutting of a brand new dog park, and a companion human park across the street, in Dupont Circle.

Mayor Adrian Fenty was present to officially open the park, which has been eagerly anticipated for close to 9 months now.

Dogs are a big deal here. I am sure many residents would say the impact on their health of having the ability to run and play with your dog is as important as many health care interventions. People are drawn to all pursuits that help people achieve their life goals through optimal health.

Just ask Milo, my favorite dog in all of Washington (doesn’t he melt your heart?)

Here’s a few images of Mayor Fenty doing the official stuff…


Hello Ted

Great pics!! Sure could do with some of that sunshine. Raining in NW England ;-(

Noting your focus on e-Health and patient empowerment the health and social care model introduced below may be of interest to you and your readers as a possible resource?

The model helps patients, carers and the health care team reflect and be inclusive in their thinking.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,
