Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Buffalo, NY – It's been a tough week with all the news about the swine flu. It might have some of you looking to have a few laughs this weekend. Well, may we suggest the World Laughter Day celebration in Delaware Park this Sunday.

There's a local organization called HAHA -- the Humor and Health Association of Western New York. It's an affiliate of the Wellness Institute because laughter is good for our health and well being. And this Sunday, members of HAHA will be gathering near the Rose Garden of Delaware Park to share in some laughter.

Nels Cremean is the groups chair. We caught him on the road on his cell phone Thursday afternoon to find out more. Click the audio player above to hear Mark Scott's interview now or use your podcasting software to download it to your computer or iPod.

HAHA meets onnce a month. Learn more at hahawny.org.
