In today's episode of the #medicmaterialspodcast we speak with Joni Bonilla, a professional dog trainer who has created a Service Dog training program for First Responders and Veterans. This program aims to heal wounds caused by Post Traumatic Stress and shed light on the stigma of Post Traumatic Stress in the First Responder community. This is an informative and inspirational conversation and we hope you will reach out if you believe you're in need of one of Joni's service dogs or want to help support her cause. We are joined with Emily (NYS EMT, ER-RN), Kelsey (NYS EMT) & Gerard (NYS AEMT-P)
