Saturday, January 19, 2019

Research is now showing that “Laughter IS the best medicine.” At this meeting members will learn why laughter is beneficial to our physical, emotional and social well~being. Through interactive exercises, we will learn how to include more laughter in our daily lives.

Peggy Stabholz earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Heidelberg University in Tiffin, OH. She earned a Master of Philosophy in psychological research from the University of London, England, and a Masters in Counseling and Human Development from Walsh University in North Canton, OH. As part of her post~graduate studies, Peggy was involved in the first group of 32 people trained to become a Certified Laughter Leader by the World Laughter Tour. Peggy has been featured on Cleveland news stations 3, 5 and 8, as well as in a segment on laughter on CBS Sunday Morning and in a segment on South Korea TV.

Mark your calendar with a BIG smile face as a reminder to attend this meeting to learn how to add some healthful mirth to your days.
