Dr. Clown! is a non-profit organization whose team of professional therapeutic artists works closely with the medical staff at The Children's to promote an environment of imagination and play, in order to help alleviate the patient's stress and contribute to the improvement of quality of life.
The practice of 'clown doctoring' began almost twenty years ago in several hospitals throughout the world. Laughter can be a significant factor in the healing process and the clowns' approach is tailored to each patient's needs using music, storytelling, magic and more. All clowns are professional artists, guided psychosocially, and adhering to a code of ethics.
