SOMC Held Laugh With Heart EventPosted on February 16, 2011
Southern Ohio Medical Center held its 6th Annual Heart Event, titled “Laugh With Heart” on Feb. 15 at the Friends Community Center. More than 200 people pre-registered for free cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, body mass index, waist circumference and heart risk analysis screenings. Participants were greeted with goodie bags, balloon art, various education booths and a live comedian. Laughing for 15 minutes a day can reduce stress, pain and conflict, resulting in improved heart health.Shown above is Loretta Colegrove (right) receiving health counseling from Kathy McCullough, RN from SOMC Cardiac Testing and Kurtis Underwood, Shawnee State University nursing student (left).
