Reminder: Local 196 Education Event May 11, 2022

 UNA Local 196 welcomes

Brenda Elsagher

Brenda is a Certified Humor Professional accredited through the Association of Applied and Therapeutic Humor. It is a 3- year program that teaches evidenced-based research on humor and healing. There is actual science for what Brenda knew instinctively.

Brenda presents a rare look “behind the scenes,” with numerous and humorous insights for healthcare professionals and her stories illustrate the need for humor with patients and their families to use as a coping tool through the laughter and the tears. The great side effect is that the healthcare professionals benefit too making the work place a healthier place to be.
