Pueblo, CO -- Is laughter really the best medicine? Would you believe that 20 minutes of laughing gives the heart the same beneficial effect as 20 minutes of hard rowing? Parkview Medical Center’s Spirit of Women is hosting a health-u-tainment event meant to get you giggling and thinking about your heart health. “Laugh Your Heart Out” will be held on Thursday, June 21 at the Pueblo Country Club from 6pm to 9pm.

In addition to enjoying a night out with girlfriends, attendees will be treated to a comedy show from comedian and professional speaker, Jan McInnis. She will focus on women and the crazy lives that we lead, while “finding the funny.” Inspired by fifteen years as a marketing director in the 9 to 5 world, Jan has cornered the association and corporate convention market. And over the past 16+ years on the full-time speaking circuit, she has spoken at hundreds of conferences, training sessions, employee retreats and banquets. Jan was featured in the “Wall Street Journal” as one of the top convention comedians whose material is clean and in the Washington Post for her clean comedy writing. She is also the author of “Finding the Funny Fast: How to Create Quick Humor to Connect with Clients, Coworkers and Crowds.”

Social hours are planned for before and after the program where attendees can visit and shop with Spirit of Women Business Reward Partners: Old Navy; P.S. I Love You; 31 Gifts; Silpada – Cassie Krall; Pueblo Marriott; Apriori Beauty; and William Storm Allergy Clinic. Experts from Parkview’s Heart Caring Team and Parkview Mobile Nurses will be on hand to answer your health questions. A special signature drink themed for the evening will also be available for purchase.

The evening will also showcase presentations from Pueblo Cardiology and Parkview Cardiology Heart Caring Team. It is guaranteed to be a night of education and fun that you won’t want to miss. The cost of the event is $15 for Spirit of Women members; $20 for non-members; and $25 lifetime membership with admission. The event is limited to 150 participants. Heavy appetizers and a cash bar will be available. To register, please call 719.584.4878.
