USC Hospital and USC MG Incubator agree: "Laughter is the Best Medicine", in deals with LaughMD

LOS ANGELES - June 28, 2023 - PRLog -- First, LaughMD signed a Professional Services Agreement with the University of Southern California. Now, USC's Center for Entrepreneurial Studies Marshall/Greif Incubator has accepted LaughMD into their program! LaughMD is a market innovator in digital therapeutics.  The app features a curated library of thousands of family-friendly, trigger-free comedy videos. LaughMD also queries for HIPAA-compliant data that helps patients and caregivers feel better and heal faster. The app is currently in use at USC's Norris Cancer Hospital under the leadership of Dr. Jacek Pinski. And it's effective; in their study, 91% of the surveyed patients with pain said LaughMD helped to lower their pain. In nearly 500 studies thus far, laughter has been shown effective in reducing stress, pain, heart attacks, etc. Laughter increases dopamine, endorphins and serotonin, boosting the immune system, reducing the use of pain-killers, etc.

LaughMD's founder Prof. Frank Chindamo said, "Everyone's heard the expression, 'Laughter is the best medicine.' We're the first to actually use it as measurable, evidence-based medicine." And, "This isn't an unorthodox treatment like energy healing, goat yoga or magic crystals. We've done 4 studies so far, including two at USC, one at Chapman University, and a 5th currently being conducted at A.T. Still University. The study at cCare Cancer Center showed that LaughMD lowered pain by almost 50% for the patients experiencing pain."

In addition, Laugh MD reminds us that the role of comedy in entertainment can also be
healing, as evidenced by LaughMD Board Member Dr. Jeffrey L. Gurian. Gurian is a former dentist and former clinical professor at New York University in Oral Medicine and Oro-Facial Pain. As one of the only doctors with a long-standing career in comedy, he has also written for, interviewed, or worked with stars ranging from Kevin Hart, Sarah Silverman, and Amy Schumer, to Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Burr, Nick Kroll, and John Mulaney. "As a doctor and best-selling author with a lifetime of experience in healing and addiction recovery, as well as comedy, I know that LaughMD is the best new healing modality for patients and caregivers." The LaughMD Advisory Board also includes Dr. Patch Adams, portrayed by Robin Williams in the film "Patch Adams."

The USC Incubator program accelerates the development of USC's top entrepreneurs through experiential education, mentorship, and community. Since the program started, USC has worked with 200 companies and had successful winners at competitions such as New Seed Venture, Stevens Student Innovator, Silicon Beach, Min Family Challenge, and Maseeh Prize. With the help of this program, LaughMD will excel in new achievements.
