ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Hundreds of humor professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe will share laughter and its life-enhancing effects during the Annual conference of the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH) to be held April 19-22, 2012 at the Westin O’Hare in Chicago, IL. In celebration of their 25th anniversary and National Humor Month, association members will distribute thousands of red noses and encourage laughter throughout Chicago.

“When our patients and families embrace and integrate humor into their lives we see positive outcomes,” says Dr. Katherine Puckett, AATH member and National Director, Mind-Body Medicine at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. “It is an exciting time in the field of humor research, and AATH is a great resource for keeping current on the study and application of healthy humor.”

AATH President Chip Lutz, USN(Ret), MSEd, CLL shares the benefits of humor and laughter with members of the military and their families. “It’s a no brainer. AATH conferences are life altering.
