Patch Adams Conference

A group of 8 Dr Klown volunteers visited a 2-day workshop followed by a Conference by Dr Hunter “Patch” Adams in Genova, well known from the film “Patch” in which he was impersonated by the late Robin Williams. The workshop was attended by 140 clown doctors, mainly from Italy, whilst the Conference attracted a public of 880 people, clown doctors as well as medical doctors, nurses, volunteers.

It was a revealing experience for all of us, and we thank the MCCF for supporting us to make it possible for our delegation to attend such once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

We also met with other Clown Doctor NGO’s with whom we plan to keep contact to exchange ideas and good practices.
