Medical Humor Presentations
Keynotes, Seminars, Special Events
Peter Jennings once said the following about this nationally
popular speaker, "In the latter part of the century, Sir William Olser was one of the
very first to recognize the importance of the bedside manner, including the Healing Power
of Humor. I suspect he would approve of Dr. Stu Silverstein."
Dr. Silverstein's work on the subject has been featured on numerous other
TV programs as well as The New York Times and Physicians Financial News.
He is one of the few physicians in the United States who has also worked
as an award-winning standup comedian. He now devotes much of his time combining his dual
backgrounds by giving hilarious entertaining presentations to Health and other
professionals. His two presentations, "Humor and Medicine??...You Must Be
Joking!!!" and "Reducing Stress Through Humor and Not the Other
Way Around," keep him in high demand around the country as a keynote speaker
By spreading the word about the Healing Power of Humor and keeping
Doctors entertained all across the country, Dr. Stu Silverstein is truly
the "Healer of Healers."
