Laughter is the Best Medicine

Join CBS member and physician Carrie Horwitch over Zoom for a laughter practice. Both laughter and mindfulness/meditative practice have research that shows multiple health benefits. These health benefits include decreasing stress hormones, improved arterial compliance, improved oxidation, improved immune function markers, and improved well being. This is a fun, interactive way to teach resiliency and get exercise at the same time.
