Join us for a symposium that will bring together health care professionals, caregivers and anyone affected by chronic diseases like cancer in a morning of learning and conversation. Together, we’ll explore the beneficial impact laughter can have on physical, emotional and mental health and its integration in care.

SIMIN BEG, M.D. “MANAGING PAIN THROUGH LIFESTYLE INTERVENTIONS”

Dr. Simin Beg will illuminate the complex aspects of pain and the multiple ways that pain can impact a person and their quality of life. Dr. Beg will share lifestyle interventions that can address and alleviate pain.

NANCY NORTON “THE POWER OF HUMOR FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS

Learn how therapeutic humor helps manage pain, stress & trauma responses. Humor helps us heal in an uplifting way that not only brings a sense of relief and empowerment, it brings us joy. Charlie Chaplain said, “Take your pain and play with it!”

NANCY NORTON “THE POWER OF HUMOR FOR TRAUMA SURVIVORS”

We will apply therapeutic humor to experience the relief of painful traumas. Most of us have experienced some trauma. Healthcare workers experience a lot of vicarious trauma at work, which can be as impactful as some direct traumas.
