Clown Doctors Heal Kids With Humor
The Big Apple Circus Clown Care Unit has been helping doctors by bringing humor into their hospitals since 1986, proving laughter really is the best medicine.
Members of the Clown Care team work with physicians to conduct 'clown rounds,' their own version of medical rounds, where the healing power of humor is always the prescription! There are currently 80 committed and talented professional artists conducting clown rounds one to five days a week, year-round, making nearly 225,000 visits to young patients every year, while providing countless smiles! As Bill Boots says, “doctors deal with what's wrong with a patient, Clown Care deals with what's right."
