A Special Thank You to our Exhibitors! 


Corporate Health Resources, Inc. (CHR) was founded in 1986 by Karen W. Cohen, RHIA. CHR is a privately held company, a woman-owned business and a veteran-owned business. CHR is a nationwide examiner network that provides occupational health exams in all 50 states and many international locations as well. Many of our clients have an internal Medical Department and CHR’s staff becomes an administrative extension of a company’s own department. We coordinate exams outside the catchment area of the company’s medical department. For clients without an internal Medical Department, we can provide the same service using your consulting medical director, or physician recommended by CHR.

Afternoon Keynote

“The Healing Power of Laughter in the Workplace”

Diana Jordan

 Corporate Motivational Speaker

If you want to bring something different to your next meeting or event you need the fun, informative, inspirational and humorous Diana Jordan! Ask any nurse if she feels OVERWORKED- UNDER APPRECIATED & STRESSED the answer would be a resounding “Yes!” As a breast cancer survivor and now nurse speaker Diana knows the importance of not only inspiring them but giving encouragement for them to take care of themselves as well. “Put your oxygen mask on first, then take care of others!” In and out of the hospital, Diana spent quite a bit of time around nurses. She was so happy to experience all the wonderful nurturing and sometimes even received some giggles at her jokes! “In life you have to role with the punches & the Punchlines!” Diana also demonstrates in her Presentation the many health benefits of laughter and even a simple smile. Humor can be used to cope with stress, defuse potentially difficult situations and increase morale and productivity in the workplace.
