The IGM Art Gallery launched its monthly series, “Laughter is the best medicine (for doctors, too)” on Jan. 13.  The show, organized by Producer Frank Chindamo, LMD and Comedian Brian Moreno,  presented a broad spectrum of comedic sketches covering physical, mental, spiritual and social issues in Los Angeles.
Faculty from the USC Marshall School of Business, Keck School of Medicine of USC and the USC School of Cinematic Arts mingled with artists and community leaders, including executives from FOX Group and the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science. Guests got their dose of stress relieving, healthy laughter. The event was organized by Jill Miller, IGM Art Gallery Event Coordinator.
