You've probably heard the saying "laughter is the best medicine." That's one of the things nurses are learning at a medical conference being held at the Desoto Hilton in downtown Savannah.
The guest speaker is nurse practitioner Kevin Smith. He is teaching the participants how to use humor when they care for patients young and old.
"When they leave here, they'll go back and apply a lot of this information," said nurse Donna Hodnicki. "Humor just makes people feel better and many times it is appropriate to help relax the patients and get them in a mood where they will listen better about what you are telling them."
Today the nurses also learned about diagnosing lower back pain, seasonal allergies and several other conditions.
