Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine presents the Opening Art Reception for "Laughter is the Best Medicine" on Wednesday, April 25, 2018.

The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine's latest art exhibition, which is being produced by the school’s Creativity in Health Education program, will serve, in part, as a tribute to Dr. Julien H. Meyer, Jr. Throughout his career as an obstetrics and gynecology physician, Dr. Meyer was well-known for his appreciation of humor and adroit ability to incorporate it into his work as a physician.

In addition to practicing at Physicians to Women, which was founded by his father, Dr. Meyer was a faculty member at the school and embodied many of the school’s core values, especially patient-centered care and community involvement. This exhibit is dedicated to honoring Julien Meyer’s longtime service to the community, his patients, and the school, while celebrating two of his many interests – humor and art.

Everyone enjoys a good laugh, but have you ever considered what it means for your health? From stress release to boosting your immune system and improving your mood, the science is clear – laughter makes for great medicine.

Come, laugh with us!

The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine at 2 Riverside Circle in Roanoke, VA.
