One of the messages at the 2010 Women's Health Summit in Fargo is that relieving stress through things like laughter, or acupressure can keep you healthier. Stress is tied to health problems.

The annual event, hosted by First Lady Mikey Hoeven features many products and strategies to encourage healthy living, with a mission to improve the lives of not only women, but whole families.

“Women are the caretakers of the family and if they're importing good, helpful information to their families, their whole family will be healthier in turn.”

The event was so popular this year they had to turn away both exhibitors and participants.
