Medical Humor Event To Benefit Central Louisiana Arts & Healthcare, Inc.

On Saturday, December 4th, Central Louisiana Arts & Healthcare will host an event dedicated to humor.  It is open to the public and will help everyone de-stress and laugh at everyday situations.  The event will begin at 7:30pm at Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center and will feature Florida-based comedian, David Glickman.  David specializes in medical humor and has spoken all over North America at Medical and Business Conferences in addition to enjoying a career as a comedian and author.

David’s unique brand of humor features parody songs on themes that he sings and plays with a portable keyboard strapped around his neck.  Also included at the event is an art show highlighting local artists presenting original art on the theme of medical humor.  All art will be available for purchase.  And, we will have raffle tickets available for two round-trip tickets from American Airlines to anywhere within the contiguous 48 states, Canada and Mexico.  The winner of this raffle will be announced at our 5th Annual Doctors’ Day Follies event on March 26, 2011.

We are also pleased to announce that this activity, A Dose of Healthcare Humor, with a beginning date of December 4th, has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 2.00 Elective credits by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
