Humour as a Tool for Optimizing Good Health with Dr. Ken Shonk

Taking a look at the research that has been done in the last 15 years on the physiology, anatomy, biochemistry and classification of humour. Along with the uses of humour in communicating, stress management, ageing, parenting and dealing with illnesses. The overall idea will be to have fun but also prove that: “There ain’t much fun in medicine but there is a lot of medicine in fun.”

About Cambridge Third Age Learning (CTAL)

Cambridge Third Age Learning (CTAL) is a movement that encourages learning and discovery experiences for those in the “third age”—the stage in one’s life beyond full-time employment. By cultivating opportunities for discussion and engaging the expertise of local university professors and community professionals, CTAL supports those who have an intellectual curiosity and an interest in life-long learning. At Idea Exchange, our hope is to foster a self-organized group which would create CTAL programs throughout the year with our support as a venue and promotional vehicle.
