Translation by Dag Sirnes:
Skien: Several hundred heart and lung patients and other patient groups gather in demonstration parade when Skien is today on Saturday named a health town by LHL (National Association for Heart and Lung Disease).
In the market square in the middle of the town, mayor Kari Lise Holmberg is challenged to put rehabilitation on the political agenda.
The program for the day begins with a political statement and entertainment by Steven Ackles, continues with demonstration parade and a health square with exhibitions and free measurement of blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and breathing capacity.
And finally, there will be a number of interesting lectures in Ibsenhuset before the evening ends with a party performance in the same place. There will be an artist list that is rarely gathered on one board - including Silje Nergaard, Anita Skorgan, Geir Lystrup, the choir Mosaic, Tor Erik GunstrÝm, Ackles, Jens Wendelboe's Orchestra, Marianne Antonsen and Rita Eriksen - as well as presenter Petter Nome.
