How does one create an exceptional life? Author, Dina Mauro sets out to answer this question in the unlikeliest of places, Swedish Medical Center. A Dose of Tia explores love, life, and healing. As the human member of her registered team, Mauro recounts her experiences at the hospital in this journal-style memoir with humor and candor, providing life lessons gleaned along the way.
Tia, an English Pointer, was minutes away from being euthanized before she was rescued four years ago.
“I guess you could say that a rescued dog rescues patients and staff at the hospital. Tia is now giving back to the very species that at one time had no use for her,” explains author and publisher, Dina Mauro.
Dina and her dog Tia are available for interviews and are experienced in front of the camera.
