Patch Adams Biography

"Patch" Adams is an American physician, comedian, social activist, clown, and author. He is the founder and director of Gesundheit Institute, a free health facility in operation since 1971. It is the only health facility in the U.S. addressing four major issues in health care delivery by action. Those issues include the rising cost of care, dehumanization of medicine, malpractice suits and the abuses of the third party system.

His distinctiveness and universal appeal led to the development of a movie starring Robin Williams in the title role. The 1998 film Patch Adams was based on Adams' life and his views on medicine.

As a speaker, Dr. Adams travels around the world lecturing on his work and doing theater shows about various aspects of health, particularly dealing with self-care and preservation. He is enthusiastic, perceptive, and a humorous person . In the last 28 years, he has presented and performed in 70 countries, and spoken at 90 medical schools in the US and many more around the world.

In 1985, Patch took a group of people on a clown trip to what was then the Soviet Union. Equipped with colorful clothing and compassion they visited hospitals, orphanages, homes for the elderly as well as just clowning on the street. Since then, these trips have been an integral part of Gesundheit´s global outreach. Apart from returning to Russia every year there have been clown trips to all corners of the world, including visits to war zones, refugee camps and natural disaster sites. They've also built clinics and a school at some of the places visited.
