'Laughter the Best Medicine" subject of December Seniors Count workhop
NASHUA – Learn about the health benefits of laughter at the upcoming Seniors Count-Nashua workshop, scheduled for Monday, December 10 at the Nashua Senior Activity Center.
Laughter helps your blood flow, has a positive impact on the immune system and helps lower blood sugar levels. It’s also fun…and beneficial to your body.
Workshop presenters are James Sullivan and Erica Kelly of Crestwood Care and Rehabilitation Center in Milford. James and Erica promise to make you laugh until your side hurts and tears roll down your cheeks.
The free workshop begins at 1:00pm. The Senior Activity Center is located at 70 Temple St., Nashua.
Advance registration for the workshop is requested. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator for Southern New Hampshire Services at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
