Keynote Speaker - Barb Nash, MS, RNC, CNS

 2016 Annual Conf Keynote, Barb Nash

Even as a student, Barb Nash instinctively knew there was a place for humor in nursing and 
health care, but it wasn't until Norman Cousin's bestselling book, "Anatomy of an Illness," in 
1964 that the scientific world began to study the possible relationship between humor and 
health. Barb suddenly felt validated and continued to investigate humor and incorporate
it into her professional life.

Join Nash, as she speaks on Humor and Health, and helps her audiences explore the development of humor
in children, identifies how adults lose touch with their inner child, and teaches us how to restore and
nurture our funny bones. Audience participation is key to fully enjoying your time with her. Engage with
Barb in laughter and play, contribute to your own physical, psychological, and social health, and discover
ways to incorporate humor into your life.

Nash is a graduate of The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, OH, where nothing was funny, the Ohio University,
Athens, OH and The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH. She has spent most of her career in primary
care and nursing education.
