AAOE's 2019 Annual Conference agenda is packed with a lineup of all-star industry experts presenting on the latest trends and innovation in orthopedic practice management. To help you get to know the conference's speakers a little better, we will be spotlighting them leading up to the conference.

AAOE's 2019 Annual Conference brings to you Sarah Routman, President & CEO of Laugh for the Health of It, LLC. Stress-related healthcare costs in the workplace are on the rise. Studies show that when we play, we allow ourselves to see something new, which stimulates our creativity and imaginations, ultimately becoming better problem solvers. Laughter helps combat boredom, fatigue, and stress, as well as making us feel better. You’ll be amazed at the fun you’ll experience as you let your inhibitions go and laugh like you’ve never laughed before. Discover all the health benefits of laughter as you laugh deeply with wild abandon! Join us for the perfect "Happy Hour" that will stretch your funny bone and your comfort zone!

Routman recently shared some information to help you get to know more about her and her session!

AAOE: Why should attendees come to your session?

Routman: When your brain is filled to the brim with resources from the powerful educational sessions at the conference and you find yourself in need of a break, you’ll find a 'A Truly Happy Hour’ will not only tickle your funny bone, but provide serious stress relief, balance and a double dose of FUN to your overall conference experience and help guide you to create a more uplifting culture at work.


AAOE: What's a fun fact about you that attendees should know?

Routman: I’ve inspired thousands of people all over the world to laugh for no reason. Milton Berle said, ‘Laughter is an instant vacation.’ Where do you want to go? Join me on Monday from 1:20-2:30 in Canal Room A and I’ll take you on the vacation of your dreams!


AAOE: What are key takeaways from your session?

Routman: In addition to a having a great interactive experience that will stimulate your creativity and leave you feeling amazing, this session will increase your energy level as you become more focused and more present. Not only that, this is a great opportunity to get your exercise in for the day. You probably didn’t know that belly laughing for 15 minutes can burn 50 calories. If you create a daily laughter habit, you can lose 4 pounds in a year without ever going to the gym. Come as you are – all you need is a willingness to shed your inhibitions and laugh up a storm! You’ll learn all sorts of tools to help boost staff morale, manage stress, and keep yourself in tip-top shape, too.
