Home / News / NEO to host “Care for the Health of It” with John T. Glick, M.D.

 

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) will host the program “Care for the Health of It” on Monday, June 10, 2013 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. in the Calcagno Family Ballroom inside the Student Union. The event is open to general public, students, and healthcare providers.

This 90-minute keynote, experimental session will give participants the tools for enhancing individual and group health and reducing stress while promoting a vital, creative, and supportive workplace. Everyone is welcome for an evening of laughter and learning.

The keynote speaker will be John T. Glick, M.D., Director of Gesdundheit! Institute Global Research. The program is sponsored by the E.D.U.C.A.T.E. M.E. Summer Health Academy.

“Dr. Glick was a huge success last year with the academy students.  He set the stage for the EDUCATE ME Academy, and the students talked about him all week. They loved it,” said Vickie Garner, NEO nursing instructor.
 
Glick is a physician, acupuncturist, musician, clown and humorist with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry and a minor in religion. He practiced family medicine in rural Shenandoah Valley for 10 years before opening the Shenandoah Valley’s first acupuncture clinic in 1991.

He serves on the board of directors of the Gesdundheit! Institute, a non-profit service organization founded by Dr. Patch Adams promoting health care reform, justice, and education with an emphasis on fun, friendship, and community. Glick also coordinates the Geshundheit clown and community development missions around the world.

“Last year’s public presentation was great. We had good participation and lots of laughter. His talk of his clowning missions around the world was both interesting and entertaining. We look forward to hearing Dr. Glick again this year,” Garner said. “Be ready to get involved and be entertained.”
