We all know the phrase “laughter is the best medicine.” And according to Dr. Colleen Cooke, there’s scientific proof to back up this old adage.

Dr. Cooke is a Professor of Recreational Therapy at Slippery Rock University. She holds a PhD in Healthcare Education and a Master’s degree in Counseling.

Dr. Cooke is also a certified "laughter leader," and recently co-authored a book called The Fun Encyclopedia for Therapists.
